Health Inequalities 10 Years On
On 25 February the Health Foundation published the report Health Equity in England: the Marmot Review 10 Years On which updates the 2010 report and highlights how:
- Health inequalities have widened rather than retracted between poorer and richer areas and areas like the North East compared with similar areas in London.
- Life expectancy has decreased.
- Many people will live more of their lives in poorer health.
The report focuses on five themes from the original Fair Society, Health (the Marmot Review) report which examine:
- creating the best beginning in life for children.
- granting people the chance to reach their potential and have power over their lives.
- giving everybody a healthy standard of life.
- offering everybody good employment opportunities.
- building healthy and sustainable towns and communities.
