‘Building Back Fairer – what has COVID 19 taught us?’

September 21 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for the first of a series of stimulating webinars which are designed to encourage engagement, support reflection and above all else increase personal agency in order to address health inequalities. This 2021 programme begins as it will continue with another stellar line up of subject experts.

 

The 10 Years On Review, #Marmot 2020, confirmed a widening of already gaping health inequalities and set out the cost to society of these avoidable and preventable health inequities.

The report said:

  • Some people can expect to experience more of their lives in poor health
  • Life expectancy has stalled
  • There has been a stark decline in life expectancy for the poorest 10% of women
  • Life expectancy gaps between the rich and poor have increased and
  • Place matters, especially when it’s bad for your health.

Then COVID -19 came along and further amplified these existing health inequalities and the repercussions in the North were particularly acute.

We are absolutely delighted to welcome Dr Tammy Boyce, co-author 10 years On (The Marmot Review), Hannah Davies Head of External and Public Affairs from the Northern Health Science Alliance (NHSA) and Dr Sophie Wickham a Welcome Trust Research Fellow in the Department of Public Health, Policy and Systems at the University of Liverpool to lead a stimulating discussion which will support understanding of the scale of this problem, highlight particular impacts in the North of England whilst looking to address these inequalities and find solutions to build a more equitable society.
