Impacts of poverty on health a global issue

Posted on: Tue 4 Apr 2017

As part of World Health Day this Friday, Anti-Poverty Network SA and Public Health Association Australia are teaming up to raise awareness of the impacts the low rate of Newstart has on the physical and mental health of recipients.

Public Health Association Australia CEO, Michael Moore, joined Small Change’s Lisa Burns for a chat ahead of this weeks’ World Congress on Public Health, and he explained how this partnership came about, the reason for this focus on the relationship between poverty and health, and how such issues are manifesting in other countries.
