    A presentation series by CPAG & Associate Professor Dan Exeter and co-hosted by PHA Otago Southland branch with guest speaker  Jordana Whyte from Cosy Homes

    The New Zealand Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD) is a set of tools for identifying
    concentrations of deprivation in New Zealand. It measures deprivation at the
    neighbourhood-level in data zones custom-designed to produce better small area
    information without losing their contents to suppression or confidentiality. The IMD
    comprises 28 indicators grouped into seven domains of deprivation: Employment,
    Income, Crime, Housing, Health, Education and Access to services, which may be
    used individually or in combination to explore the geography of deprivation and its
    association with a given health or social outcome. Associate Professor Dan Exeter,
    who co-developed the IMD, will discuss its development, how it compares to NZDep,
    and demonstrate the different ways in which the IMD and its domains can be used to
    better understand the drivers of deprivation within the Dunedin area. Dan will also discuss the potential for the IMD to inform health and social policy.


    Associate Professor Dan Exeter

    Dan Exeter is an Associate Professor based in Epidemiology and Biostatistics at
    the School of Population Health, University of Auckland. He is a quantitative health
    geographer and has a background in Geographical Information Systems and spatial
    analysis. Dan’s research uses large datasets, such as the census or routine health

    databases, to identify the occurrence of or potential solutions to, inequalities in health.

    Guest Speaker Jordana Whyte

    Jordana Whyte is the Project Manager for the Cosy Homes Trust, the coordinating agency for healthy homes
    work across Otago. She will offer some local context around the challenges of fuel/energy poverty in our
    region, and how unhealthy housing helps perpetuate a cycle of poverty.

    Free, RSVP as space is limited. Light snacks and non-alcoholic drinks provided.

    Health Promotion Forum of New Zealand (HPF) is co-hosting the 2019 World Conference on Health Promotion with IUHPE (International Union for Health Promotion and Education).

    The conference is a great opportunity for all public health and health promotion colleagues and institutions to network,  gain knowledge and share their research findings and professional experience with 2,000 colleagues from around the world.

    The theme “Waiora: Promoting Planetary Health and Sustainable Development for All” is very apt and timely, given the range of global  challenges – environment, economy, ethical governance & leadership, equity & equality, and sustainable development– to name a few, that we are all being confronted with in our common home, planet earth.

    The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is the framework for the conference.

    We have world champions of public health, health promotion and planetary health, such as Sir Michael Marmot, Professor Fran Baum, Professor Anthony Capon, and Sir Mason Durie, as key note speakers
