Sammanfattning

Purpose: To discuss the need for more focus on the concept of equity in order to address increasing inequalities in health in all the Nordic countries - despite their status as “social democratic” welfare states. Organisation: (what will happen, when and how) The workshop takes its starting point in a recent study conducted by a Nordic research group. It aimed to explore how the terms equity/equality were defined and applied in selected Nordic health policy documents 2001-2011, and how the policy measures were described and communicated for addressing and reducing inequity/social inequalities in health in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The study suggests that the concept of ‘Equity in Health’ needs to be re-established as a core value and a strong concern within health promotion in the Nordic countries. Programme 1) Brief introduction to the concept “Equity in Health” by the moderator (5-10 minutes) 2) The members of the group will give a brief summary of the results of the study of Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish documents respectively (5 minutes x 4 = 20 minutes) 3) Time for participants to reflect on and discuss the subject and the results presented in small groups (5-10 minutes). 4) Discussion in plenum chaired by the moderator, focusing on how a more clear focus on equity aspects can be communicated to politicians and others responsible for public health matters and policy making (25-30 minutes). Participation: (how are participants expected to interact with the workshop moderator) Please see points 3 and 4 above.
