CHEX National Conference 2017 - Power, inequality and community-led health

CHEX LogoOn March 1st 2017 we invited community-led health organisation and public sector partners to attend our free annual conference.

It was a great day of useful conversations, a chance to meet and learn from each other.

With the empowerment agenda starting to be felt across Scotland we explored what that means for community-led health.

We're working on the report for this event right now. In the meantime, download all the slides from our fantastic speakers.

Community Health Exchange

CHEX is short for Community Health Exchange. We promote and support community-led health -where local communities identify the issues that are important to them and organise to take collective action to address these issues and improve their health.
