Law and justice across healthcare and education in the Commonwealth

DISCUSSIONS: What’s Law got to do with it event at Coventry University

THE ISSUE of justice in healthcare, education and health equity across the Commonwealth will be hotly debated this July, in an event taking place at Coventry University.

Healthcare and Education in a Commonwealth context: What’s Law got to do with it? takes place on Saturday 8 July 2017, between 9am and 1.30pm at Coventry University. Due to the enormous popularity of these events, guests must register to attend online.

Speaking at the conference will be experts from across a number of highly regarded businesses and institutions, including:

• Professor Kevin Fenton MB BS PhD, National Director (Health & Well Being), Public Health England, UK
• Dr Josephine Ojiambo MD MPH, Deputy Secretary General, The Commonwealth Secretariat
• Mr. David Locke QC, Barrister, (Landmark Chambers), Former Member of Parliament

• Mrs. Dawn Brathwaite LLB LLM MBA, Partner (Healthcare), Mills & Reeve LLP
• Mr. Alistair Holdoway, Managing Director, Video South Medical Television, UK

The speakers will consider whether inequality in living and working conditions in the Commonwealth translate into inequalities in health and whether these are unjust. They will seek to discuss the connections between law, telemedicine and countering the effects of inadequate health disparities, by looking at the roots causes of them.

These include racism, physiological, cultural, socioeconomic and environmental factors, as well as quality of care, governance, legislation and the requirement for policies which impact on human need.

What’s Law got to do with it? is the flagship event for a brand new collaboration between three of the UK’s finest institutions, Coventry Law School, the Coventry University Faculty of Health & Life Sciences, the University of Warwick Medical School’s Division for Mental Health & Wellbeing and the Commonwealth Secretariat Division for Political Affairs, Human Rights and Rule of Law.
