Measuring inequalities in health: mini-course given by the ICEH team

Participants of the course "MEASURING INEQUALITIES IN HEALTH" positively evaluated the content, dynamics and practical classes. The course was part of the activities of the X Brazilian Congress of Epidemiology (Florianópolis - 2017) and, in the opinion of the students, only the reduced number of hours was a negative point.

During the course, the main indicators used to measure child's health inequalities, data visualization tools and strategies, as well as simple and complex measures applied in health equity analyzes were presented.
