UNESCO Chair Global Health and Education Health Education, Prevention, Health Promotion, Children and Young People

Sir Michael Marmot’s speech at the UNESCO chair launch: “Education is a key determinant for health equality”.

As Sir Michael Marmot recently described: Social injustice is killing on a grand scale”. Watch the video of Marmot’s speech from the UNESCO chair’s launch event on October 10th 2018 for some excellent food for thought. He points to countless examples, and lots of evidence-based research, on how the social determinants of health really impact health and educational opportunities and achievements.

“Education is a key determinant for health equality. Therefore, give every child the best start in life. Enable all children, young people and adults to maximise their capabilities and have control over their lives.”
