Challenges to Population Health and Well Being

Wednesday, 18 July 2018: 19:30-20:50
RC41 Sociology of Population (host committee)

Language: Spanish and English

Major economic, sociopolitical and environmental transformations and crises have a direct impact on population health and well-being.  Salient among these are political challenges to environmental justice, resulting in environmentally overburdened communities and epidemics, the current global refugee crisis, the hazards and violence of migration, and the unequal access to health, opportunities, protection and decision making processes.  This session calls for papers highlighting research on populations currently affected by these challenges and their consequences for population health and well-being. Research on migration, access to health care and other broad health related issues, environmental justice and violence are especially welcomed.
