Understand and address health inequalities

This free online course will help you to understand health inequalities and how they are socially driven. We will look at how health is affected by wider determinants and how you can make a difference as a health professional to close the health inequality gap.

Through a range of case studies from high to low income countries, you will gain a better understanding of:

- social determinants of health;

- why health inequalities exist;

- and the role of health professionals and systems in reducing health inequality.

IHE is a leading authority in the subject of health inequality and led the World Health Organization (WHO) commission on social determinants of health.
