Guest speaker Dr Belinda Townsend, Deputy Director of the Australian Research Centre for Health Equity, has examined the political economy of health, including agenda-setting for health in other domains such as trade investment, employment and social and welfare policy.

While much is known about the barriers that prevent policy and governance for public health, less is known about the strategies and conditions that can enable effective advocacy, particularly in areas outside the health portfolio which are important social and commercial determinants of health equity. In this presentation, Dr Townsend will outline different strategies for impact based on findings from multiple research projects.
