Event description

Description

It is estimated that half of the world’s population have inadequate access to full health coverage. Yet enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being, according to the constitution of the World Health Organization.

This discussion event will look broadly at access to healthcare and inequality, with four researchers from the University of Bristol and Cardiff discussing their work on fertility, mental health, energy provision and transfusion medicine.

Join us for a discussion about the challenges and opportunities facing healthcare in today’s unequal world. We hope it may even leave you questioning your very definition of health.

Panel members: Gareth Griffith, Katherine Macinnes, Peter Thomas and Sara Davies, with Professor Rachael Gooberman-Hill, Director of the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute.

Event is from 6pm to 7:30pm, followed by a drinks reception.

Free and open to all.

The discussion will include issues of a senstive nature and so we recommend that parents consider whether this event is suitable for children. If you have any questions, please contact research-without-borders@bristol.ac.uk.

Accessibility statement: Our understanding is that the venue is largely accessible for wheelchairs, with accessible toilets and step free access. Please contact us if you require additional information by emailing research-without-borders@bristol.ac.uk. We are committed to making reasonable adjustments to make the event accessible to all.
