Der Armut und Gesundheit Kongress 2024 findet am 5. und 6. März 2024 an der Freien Universität und am 12. März 2024 digital unter dem Motto: "Sozial gerecht: Gesundheit - Umwelt - Klima".
Der Kongress bringt seit 28 Jahren den Zusammenhang zwischen Armut und Gesundheit kontinuierlich in die Öffentlichkeit. Dieser Zusammenhang hat keineswegs an Bedeutung verloren und stellt sich ebenso in den Konsequenzen dar, die der menschengemachte Klimawandel auf das Wohlbefinden hat: Besonders vulnerable Bevölkerungsgruppen, die am wenigsten zum Klimawandel beitragen, sind unverhältnismäßig stark hiervon betroffen. Dies gilt sowohl auf globaler als auch auf nationaler Ebene.
Der Kongress 2024 möchte deshalb die Diskussionen unter genauerer Betrachtung des Zusammenhangs zwischen Umwelt, Klima, Armut und Gesundheit fortführen, unter dem Motto Sozial gerecht: Gesundheit – Umwelt - Klima. Der Klimawandel wird als größte Herausforderung für die Menschheit begriffen (Robert Koch-Institut 2023), denn er gefährdet nicht nur unsere natürlichen Lebensgrundlagen, sondern auch "unsere Gesundheit – und die der künftigen Generationen“, so die Bundesumweltministerin Steffi Lemke.
16th European Public Health Conference 2023 in Dublin
The European Public Health Association (EUPHA) and the European Public health Conference (EPH) are pleased to invite you to the 16th EPH conference. Chair of the Conference is Anthony Staines.
The main theme of Dublin 2023 is: Our Food, Our Health, Our Earth : A Sustainable Future for Humanity.
This conference hopes to open up part of this discussion, with a focus on health, and health care. We will look specifically at gender and health, at health care delivery generally, the use of digital tools, and the necessary staffing and skills to provide good care. We will, in line with the overall conference theme, look in depth at the climate emergency, and very specifically at the human food supply.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine poses serious risks to global food security that will require a range of responses from governments and international organizations. The unfolding crisis in Ukraine will push up already-high food price inflation, and have serious consequences for low-income net-food importing countries, many of which have seen an increase in malnourishment rates over the past few years in the face of pandemic disruptions. The Ukraine conflict not only exposes the evil of the current Russian government, but also our failure to create a resilient sustainable global food supply. We can do better, and we have to do better.
