Unique insight into health inequalities

May 19th 2015

The first issue of the Bevan Foundation’s new Equality and Social Justice Briefings is published today, 19th May 2015.

The issue looks at inequalities in health, covering socio-economic inequalities and, where data is available, inequalities between people with characteristics protected under the Equality Act 2010 (gender, age, disability, ethnicity, religious belief and sexual orientation). The briefings offer:

  • a unnique insight into how people’s social class and characteristics shape their health;
  • essential information to help organisations understand their customers or service users better and plan their activities;
  • rapid access to vital statistics to support campaigning.

The health briefing covers internationally-agreed key indicators of health, including:

  • life expectancy
  • infant mortality
  • deaths from cancer and cardiovascular disease
  • deaths from injury
  • reported general health
  • mental health
  • unhealthy behaviours including smoking, consumption of fruit and vegetables, alcohol consumption, physical activity and being overweight or obese
  • low birthweight
  • environmental quality (overcrowded housing).

The briefing is one of six a year, published bi-monthly in PDF format emailed to you or in the members’ area of the website.  A subscription costs £255 a year plus VAT or is FREE as part of organisations’ Bevan Foundation membership.
