Governing for health equity

COVID-19 throws into sharp relief the need to address the structural drivers and conditions of daily living that shape health and its unequal distribution. But pandemics are just one of the challenges for health equity in the 21st century.

Professor Sharon Friel , Director of the Menzies Centre for Health Governance at the School of Regulation and Global Governance, discusses systems of inequity and why, as we recover from Covid-19, there is an opportunity to think and act differently.
