In addition to the keynote plenary sessions delegates will have the opportunity to participate in a number of parallel sessions showcasing the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on society, how this has affected inequalities and how we begin to recover from this.

Professor Sharon Friel, Professor of Health Equity and Director of the Menzies Centre for Health Governance at the School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet), Australian National University.

Professor Susan Michie, Professor of Health Psychology and Director of the Centre for Behaviour Change at University College London & Co-Director of NIHR’s Behavioural Science Policy Research Unit.
