The Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH) and partners will host an all-island conference Knowledge 4 Health on Wednesday 25th May at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, Dublin (10am - 4pm)
The Knowledge 4 Health Conference 2016 will explore innovative and practical ways of providing knowledge support for the implementation of two public health frameworks: 'Healthy Ireland: A Framework for Improved Health & Wellbeing 2013-2025' in the Republic of Ireland, and 'Making Life Better – A Whole System Strategic Framework for Public Health 2013–2023' in Northern Ireland.
The event will be of interest to people working to improve public health and wellbeing and reduce inequalities. These include people from government departments and agencies, health and social service agencies, academia, the community and voluntary sector, and business.
