Professor Sir Michael Marmot has long made the case that health is a good indicator of how ‘well’ society is doing as a whole. Health outcomes are impacted by a large number of social determinants such as housing, education and employment. It is therefore reasonable to argue that health inequality statistics can be used as a clear metric of how equal a society is across a broad spectrum of indicators. In the same way that we use GDP to measure economic growth, it is not unreasonable to argue we can consider population health metrics and their relationship to ‘social growth’ in a similar way (of course this in no mean neglects or fails to acknowledge the inextricable link between economic and social growth).

PPP’s first report on health inequality Addressing the National Syndemic: Networking place-based solutions to health inequality has demonstrated the need for cross-sector approaches to tackling health inequality. The report found the role of business to be a crucial but underutilised resource for reducing health inequality.
