ISIH 6th International Conference. ‘Challenging Health Inequity: A Call to Action’. June 10th-12th. Palma de Mallorca


You are invited to join us in Mallorca to attend the 6th ISIH- International In Sickness and In Health Conference from Wednesday, June 10th to Friday, June 12th. Palma de Mallorca is the capital of the Balearic Islands, Spain, and home to GICS- Critical Health Research Group at the University of Balearic Islands, your host for this edition of the conference.

During the 6th ISIH conference we will focus on established forms of health inequity as well as the emergence of new forms in the 21st century. The effects of neoliberal austerity policies and concentration of wealth around the world are related to decrease in access to health care, in many instances diminished quality of care provided, and challenging working conditions for health care providers.

The objective of this conference is to bring together participants from a variety of countries to present: 1) critical analyses of empirical data which explores the social determinants of health or health care situations that (re)produce inequities; 2) theoretical or empirical proposals to challenge, change, or raise awareness regarding inequities; 3) methodological or theoretical approaches to critical inquiry and innovative ways to interrogate glocal phenomena.
