Influencing the Health Gap: Multi-country perspectives

Wednesday 24th May 2023
With Public Health Network Cymru

This webinar presented experiences and insights on the Health Equity Status Report initiative (HESRi) decomposition analyses, with a multi-country discussion on methods and findings (Wales, Italy and Slovenia).   It was a solutions-focused session, looking at how the application of the innovative Decomposition analysis methodology has generated an insight into the drivers of health inequities in Wales and other regions. The webinar aimed to:

  • Share multi-country experiences on using the decomposition methodology and how it can be used as a tool to measure health equity
  • To help inform further policy action and potential solutions to reduce the health gap in Wales and beyond
  • Gain insights into the next steps

The panel showed how the decomposition analysis tool can measure health equity and how this can be used to inform further policy action and potential solutions to reduce the health gap in Wales and beyond.

There was a panel discussion building on the lessons learned and an exploration of any limitations to the analysis followed by a question and answer session for participants.
