Care for each other, care for the environment, and caring economies

Our national conference was held online from 21-23 April 2021, ending with the celebratory CHWA 2021 Awards Gathering.

We delved into conversations about the big topics that have been amplified by Covid-19, including practitioner support and grappling with the sector’s role in challenging health inequalities, reflecting on how we can work more collaboratively and more intersectionally to address the multiple emergencies we face; a global health pandemic, the climate and ecological emergency, and rising inequality.
