Hybrid conference: Poverty and the cost-of-living crisis – a public health emergency

In collaboration with the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM), Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), and the Association of Directors of Public Health (ADPH), the Faculty of Public Health (FPH), held a hybrid conference on poverty and the cost-of-living crisis on 9th May 2023.

This key population and health inequalities conference highlighted the current crisis in the UK and raised awareness about evidence-based interventions that can be implemented to tackle poverty and its effects.

Speakers explored how the crisis is affecting public health across the UK, before delving into possible approaches and solutions that may be implemented to help priority areas such as child poverty, housing, and fuel. The end of the conference saw a panel of experts summarising the key issues raised and offering some possible next steps, to tackle these issues as a public health community.
