Place-based solutions in tackling health inequality: key themes and learnings
In this session, we will dive deeper into the findings of PPP’s State of the Nation Report: Addressing the National Syndemic: Closing the gap in UK health inequality. Chaired by Professor Sir Michael Marmot, the report assesses how effective local action and partnerships can be scaled up and how governance and accountability for health inequalities can be strengthened. Despite a lack of national action, there has been action locally, and this is accelerating in the context of the pandemic. This event will disseminate the key themes and recommendations of the project and ask the question: what needs to happen next?
