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 can register here.
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.
