NCCDH Webinar - Public policy for equity and healthy aging
This webinar is part of a series co-developed by the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH) and Health Promotion Canada (HPC) based on content from the book entitled Promoting the health of older adults: The Canadian experience (PHOA).
This first webinar in the series will explore the opportunities and challenges to building healthy public policies that promote health equity for older Canadians. Policy and program developments to support the health of older adults will be discussed, with attention to systems and practices that create health inequities. Intergenerational and life-course focused strategies that promote health equity for older adults will be explored, including governance and the necessity to move beyond “the rigid age-structured life patterns our society supports” (page 71, Promoting the health of older adults: The Canadian experience).
Participants will learn about:
- how healthy public policy can address health equity and the social determinants of health for older adults;
- policy and program innovations that support an equitable approach to addressing the social and physical health of an aging population; and
- frameworks for action that provide a roadmap for an equity-focused approach to policy development to support the health of older adults.
