Inequalities in health are not a new phenomenon but a challenge for public health practitioners around the globe. Considering the importance of the topic, a one day symposium was organized targeting public health, medical and social science professionals and students in Munich, Germany on March 17th, 2012. The paper documents major highlights of the event and summarizes the importance of such events in sensitizing current and future professionals on different aspects of health inequality and in drawing their attention into the topic.
