Project Health Equity in Education (HEQED)
Health Equity through Education for a Sustainable Society (HEQED) is an Erasmus+ project aiming to understand how educational institutions and collaborating organisations can promote health equity in our societies.
Aim Health Equality in Education (HEQED) Platform
The Aim of the HEQED project is to build competence in health equity within higher education institutions and relevant stakeholders.
An important part of our work is to build a collaborative space for building competence in health equity. We welcome you to The digital HEQED House.
The project is divided into 6 main project results:
- Design a framework for health equity in education
- Build a collaborative space (The digital HEQED House)
- Design learning material
- Pilot using The digital HEQED House in our educational programs
- Provide a training possibility for stakeholders
- Prepare the HEQED e-book
The HEQED platform will provide an arena for knowledge construction. It will also be a resource for the sharing of data, knowledge and perspectives on equity in health. A platform for life-long learning opportunities and experiences. And a connection point for future participative research and action initiatives. Ultimately, the HEQED platform will cultivate a sustainable network for ongoing competence building in equity in health.
Background Erasmus+ cooperation partnership on health equity
The consortium behind this project have worked together on various other Erasmus+ projects related to health equity. Results include updated curricula, research collaborations, and developments in digital open learning material to build competence within the clinical fields and in education. Through this project, we aim to continue these efforts and build further competence in health equity in higher education.
