Event description

Description

Theme: Investing in the future – leaving no one behind

The EquityFest aims to progress the equity agenda in the Sydney Local Health District in partnership with our communities, and governments and non-government organisations. It is a festival and celebration of our current work and an opportunity to reflect on how we might better identify and reduce inequities in the health of our communities as we move towards providing opportunities for everyone to achieve their health potential.

The 2018 EquityFest will focus on reducing inequity by building the ability of our many communities to work together to create local opportunities and environments for health. This year we will focus on social inclusion across the life course.

EquityFest hopes to provide opportunities for local health consumers, community members and organisations to “join in”: to address important health-related issues and in doing so increase social inclusion across the community. This is a long term goal but each year we hope to make some progress.

Social inclusion strategies attempt to address these issues by:

  • Providing opportunities for education and training;
  • Innovative ways of employing people;
  • Connect people to existing health, welfare, cultural and recreational facilities; &
  • Finding ways for excluded groups to have some control over decisions that affect them.

At EquityFest we would like YOU to “join in” to help create an inclusive society for all people.
