CPHW 2022 Webinar | Advocacy for income as a social determinant of health



Published
Recent experience with the COVID-19 pandemic has underscored how those living in poverty are disproportionately impacted by health threats. There is significant evidence that Basic Income will improve population health through economic security. Decent work is a movement to confront precarious employment and income inequity that provides public health with a unique opportunity for advocacy. The event reflected on lessons public health can apply when advocating to decrease income inequity as a means to improve health.
