The conference was supported and co-hosted by the Department of Health and Children, and aimed to: • Highlight the gap in health between rich and poor in Ireland and internationally. • Put the issue of a right to better health firmly on the anti-poverty agenda. • Explore how the practice of community development can contribute to better health for disadvantaged groups and communities. • Learn from community development practitioners about work, which has already begun to bring about changes in the delivery of health services and the development of health policy. • Provide an overview of how the current National and EU policy context presents opportunities for tackling health inequalities. • Bring together community development practitioners, health service personnel, researchers, policy makers and others, to exchange information and learning.
