International Conference on Social Determinants of Health (SDH)
05.12.2018 / Maputo, Mozambique
Medicus Mundi International (in) Mozambique "We want Mozambique to become a country of reference in championing Primary Health Care and to do so with scientific rigor, promoting international events for reflection and debate on how to improve PHC in the country. (...) To date, health research in Mozambique has been almost exclusively biomedical. However, we understand that the country faces challenges that go beyond this approach, and we cannot improve individual and collective health without a better understanding of the determinants that affect it. SDH can become an ideal theoretical and practical framework to reduce health inequities, particularly in Mozambique. It is in this context that medicusmundi will organize the First International Conference on Social Determinants of Health in Maputo."
