Health, Inequality and Behavior: GLO – supported Workshop with GLO President Klaus F. Zimmermann on November 11-13 at Macquarie University, Sydney/Australia

Arrived from China, GLO President Klaus F. Zimmermann is visiting Macquarie University in Sydney from November 5-14. In 2017, he had been a Visiting Professor at Macquarie University before. Zimmermann enjoyed again the lovely city and its facilities, including the Macquarie Lake next to his hotel.

During this period, the Department of Economics at Macquarie University in collaboration with Macquarie University Centre for Health Economy (MUCHE) and the Global Labor Organization (GLO) are organizing an international workshop entitled the Economics of Health, Inequality and Behavior (WEHIB). This multidisciplinary event aims to foster dialogue among social scientists on the nexus between health, behavior, and inequality across developed and developing societies.

The event is chaired by Kompal Sinha, a Senior Lecturer and HDR Director at the Department of Economics of Macquarie University. Sinha is also an Associate Editor of the Journal of Population Economics and the GLO Research Cluster Lead for Development, Health Inequality and Behavior.

Keynote speakers are Lisa Cameron (University of Melbourne), Andrew Jones (University of York), and Klaus F. Zimmermann (UNU-MERIT, Maastricht University & GLO).

The conference started on November 11 with an address by Hon Chris Bowen MP, Shadow Minister for Health, followed by the keynote speech of GLO – President Klaus F. Zimmermann on “Arsenic in Drinking Water: Health Challenges and Responses”.
