Register now for the Institute of Public Health’s webinar focused on the impact of Covid-19 on loneliness in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The webinar will take place on Thursday, February 25th between 11am – 12.15pm and you.

Loneliness is emerging as a key public health challenge for the population during the Covid-19 pandemic. Evidence shows loneliness is a significant issue for population health, as people who experience loneliness have a poorer overall quality of life and physical and mental health.

You will hear from leading experts and community organisations on emerging evidence, policy and challenges for public health.

The webinar will be relevant to stakeholders with responsibility for public health in Ireland and Northern Ireland; health professionals; policymakers; national and local government; Healthy Ireland and Making Life Better networks; the community and voluntary sector; the research and academic community; and people with an interest in tackling loneliness.
