Minister Huovinen: Equity in health is a sign of a just society

“Dear friends and champions for Health Promotion. We will soon meet at the 8th WHO Global Conference on Health Promotion in Helsinki”.

“We all agree that health constitutes a core element in people’s wellbeing. Equity in health is also a sign of a just society”, the Finnish Minister of Health and Social Services Susanna Huovinen says.

“The theme of the Conference, Health in All Policies, refers to systematic efforts to improve health and health equity through public policies across sectors”.

“This approach underlines that health and health equity should be taken into account in all public policy decision making and implementation”, minister Huovinen continues.

“On behalf of the Finnish Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, and as the newly designated Finnish Minister of Health and Social Services, I would like to welcome you to the summery Helsinki and the Finlandia Hall”.

“I am looking forward to meeting you all soon. You are ever so warmly welcome!”
