61. SJI Ten Minute Lessons Ep12: Health Inequalities in Ireland

February 11, 2021

The link between poverty and ill-health is well established by international and national research. A World Health Organization Commission that reported in 2008 on the social determinants of health found that health is influenced by factors like poverty, food security, social exclusion and discrimination, poor housing, unhealthy early childhood conditions, poor educational status, and low occupational status.

In this episode of our SJI Ten Minute Lessons series, Colette Bennett takes a look at Health Inequalities in Ireland - the causes, the Covid consequences and what needs to happen next.
