Which preconditions of good health or ill health are most fundamental and most ripe for remedial investment? Is smoking, poor diet, parasite load, socio-economic disadvantage, discrimination, poor education or lack of exercise most likely to influence health at population scale?
Which investments in health work best and what are the relative costs of not making them? This event will seek to uncover the best scientific (including biomedical) evidence available on causes and effect in population health.
The event is open to the public and free.
It will particularly suit health professionals, public servants, business people, scholarly experts and members of civil society engaged in policy formulation. Attendees are requested to register for catering and venue management purposes.
