Inequality in Mortality Outcomes in Latin American Cities Webinar

July 1 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Experts from the SALURBAL project will describe and discuss their research on mortality across 11 countries of Latin America.

A first step in achieving health equity in the cities of the Americas is understanding the causes and geographies of inequity. One way to understand inequity in health is to examine patterns of life expectancy and causes of death.

In this webinar, SALURBAL researchers Dr. Usama Bilal and Dr. Ana Ortigoza will present their research on urban adult and infant mortality in 11 Latin American countries, and how patterns of mortality are associated with other aspects of urban environments, including other aspects of social inequality.

Join us to learn more about health inequities in Latin American cities.

All attendees will be able to submit questions in English, Spanish or Portuguese. These will be answered at the end of the presentation.

*A Zoom link to the webinar will be sent prior to the event.
