Which preconditions of good health or ill health are most fundamental and most ripe for remedial investment? Is smoking, poor diet, parasite load, socio-economic disadvantage, discrimination, poor education or lack of exercise most likely to influence health at population scale? Which investments in health work best and what are the relative costs of not making them?
The forum and subsequent workshop will examine the economic cost of not investing adequately in preventative health.
The event is open to the public and free. It will particularly suit health professionals, public servants, business people, scholarly experts and members of civil society engaged in policy formulation. A submission to the Queensland Government will be compiled after the event. The session will operate under Chatham House rule (no discussion attributed without consent).
