The conference will be held online over two half-days, with an option to attend on either day or both. During the event, there will be plenty of opportunities to put questions to the speakers and to join online break-out sessions with smaller groups of other delegates.

The outbreak of COVID-19 and subsequent lockdown will have a long-term and profound impact on social isolation and loneliness in older people and will further compound the public health emergency. This digital conference will examine what is being done to address this growing epidemic.

09 Dec

This talk will examine the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic for health inequalities. It outlines historical and contemporary evidence of inequalities in pandemics - drawing on international research into the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, the H1N1 outbreak of 2009, and the emerging international estimates of socio-economic, ethnic and geographical inequalities in COVID-19 infection and mortality rates. It then examines how these inequalities in COVID-19 are related to existing inequalities in chronic diseases and the social determinants of health, arguing that we are experiencing a syndemic pandemic. It then explores the potential consequences for health inequalities of the measures implemented internationally as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on the likely unequal health impacts of the economic crisis. The talk concludes by reflecting on the longer term public health policy responses needed to ensure that the COVID-19 pandemic does not increase health inequalities for future generations. The webinar will be delivered by Clare Bambra, Professor of Public Health, Faculty of Medical Sciences, Newcastle University and will include a Question and Answer session.
