The health and wellbeing of individuals play a key role in economic growth and productivity, yet inequalities in health and wellbeing persist. This forum will explore the relationship between economic growth and health and wellbeing, focus on how the health and wellbeing of specific population groups can be improved, and show how health and wellbeing should play a more central role as a driver of economic growth.

  • Professor Anthony Scott, Melbourne Institute: Applied Economic & Social Research, The University of Melbourne
  • Professor Anne Kavanagh, Chair in Disability and Health, Melbourne Disability Institute, The University of Melbourne
