A New Politics for Health – Moving Forward from the Ottawa Charter

Friday September 2nd, 9.00 for 9.30 -12.30pm Pemberton Room, Regent Court Sheffield, S1 4DA

Thirty years ago, the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion generated worldwide interest in a new public health movement. This was based on the promotion of healthy public policies, healthy environments, inclusive public services, community action and individual skills. Thirty years later we better understand how politics and public policy affect health but we’re still battling for health equity.

In partnership with Birmingham City University and The Equality Trust, the Politics of Health Group is marking the Charter’s 30th anniversary with a one day national conference in Birmingham on the 23rd November 2016. Here. we’ll develop a new charter for health: The Birmingham Health Charter. We also want to inspire and encourage those campaigning now for a better, healthier future, and building a stronger coalition to address the causes of health inequality.

We’re inviting people working in Sheffield and the wider region to share their ideas at a pre-conference event. We’d like to make sure that good practice and innovative ideas from our region are heard at the national event through a participatory workshop. Book your place for the free Sheffield event here.
