Liam Leonard, Director, Gay and Lesbian Health Victoria and Research Fellow, Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society, La Trobe University delivered this presentation at the 2013 Social Determinants of Health conference. The conference brought together health, social services and public policy organisations to discuss how social determinants affect the health of the nation and to consider how policy decisions can be targeted to reduce health inequities. The agenda facilitated much needed discussion on new approaches to manage social determinants of health and bridge the gap in health between the socially disadvantaged and the broader Australian population.
