Summer School: Health equity in chaotic times

This Summer School offers a global analysis of health equity organised in lectures, practical workshops and group activities. It provides a theoretical basis and an in-depth reflection on health equity’s main issues through concrete and up-to-date data concerning social determinants of health, migration, discrimination against minorities, inmate populations and -of course- infectious threats.
