When COVID-19 first appeared in the UK in early 2020, it entered a society already facing growing health inequalities, where life expectancy was falling in some areas of the country.
The virus and the measures put in place to suppress it have exposed and exacerbated these inequalities, taking a disproportionate toll on groups including some ethnic minority communities and those in deprived areas.
In this episode, Professor Sir Michael Marmot will chair a discussion looking at the evidence of inequality in the pandemic, the measures used to tackle it, and the action required going forward to level health outcomes in the UK.
Joining Professor Marmot in this hour-long episode supported by the Health Foundation, we welcome Dr Habib Naqvi, Director of the NHS Race and Health Observatory, Jo Bibby, Director of Health at the Health Foundation, and Dr Bola Owolabi, Director of Health Inequalities at NHS England.
