On 29 November health professionals, researchers and policymakers, from across Ireland and Northern Ireland and beyond, came together online for the 2023 Joint North South Public Health Conference.  

Under the theme of ‘The Health-Wealth Divide: Leaving No One Behind’, this year’s conference will focus on addressing health inequalities on the island of Ireland.   

This virtual event will bring together international and local experts to discuss the drivers of health inequalities and the wider social, economic, and environmental determinants of health, while also considering how other crises, such as the cost-of-living crisis, can widen and intensify the health gap.  

Working towards the Sustainable Development Goals and reducing health inequalities are strategic priorities in Northern Ireland and Ireland. This annual all-island conference aims to provide an opportunity for knowledge exchange on what works, what doesn’t work, and what could work better when it comes to addressing health inequalities at a local and national level.
