GPHW2024: How can the application of decolonization enable the rethinking of public health paradigms for Public Health?


Apr 2, 2024

Theme: Rethinking Public Health Paradigms

Date and Time: 8th April 2024 | 20:00-21:30 (AEST)

Event Description: In late 2023 the Indigenous Working Group of the World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) hosted a webinar to discuss the importance of decolonisation to Public Health. The high attendance of this webinar demonstrated the keen global interest in this space. During the Webinar a draft definition of decolonising public health for the World Federation of Public Health Associations was discussed and further refined.

At the start of World Public Health Week for 2024 this webinar compliments this conversation and begins to ask the question, beyond definitions how can Public Health researchers, academics, and professionals deepen their understanding of decolonisation and practically and successfully apply it to their work? And what role does decolonisation play in supporting the profession to critically rethink key paradigms and prepare for the future?

This webinar will be co-facilitated by an Australian First Nations person and a non-Indigenous person of color. The panel will consist of First Nations advocates, researchers, and academics from across the globe. Participants will have opportunities to contribute to the conversation via polls and asking questions of panelists.
