Structural competency is a new framework for understanding and responding to the inequalities that make individuals and populations sick. This framework analyzes institutional and structural hierarchies and discrimination in order to confront the ways these lead to sickness and disease. This conference was the first focused on structural competency in the contexts of public health and social welfare, and brought together national experts and local community organizations to imagine paths toward a more equal and healthy future.
