The IHE is working with local authorities up and down the country to do what they can, to implement the right approaches to reduce health inequalities. The Population Health Board of the Cheshire and Merseyside Health and Care Partnership (HCP) commissioned IHE to support work to reduce health inequalities through taking action on the social determinants of health and to build back fairer from COVID-19.
The report, All Together Fairer: Health equity and the social determinants of health in Cheshire and Merseyside, is the latest in a series of ‘Marmot Reviews’. It is based on local evidence and makes ambitious recommendations to reduce health inequalities and create fairer societies for future generations in Cheshire and Merseyside. A set of local Marmot Beacon indicators, developed in partnership with hundreds of local stakeholders, will monitor these recommendations and actions and show the impact on the social determinants of health in Cheshire and Merseyside.
Note: IHE continue to work closely with other areas in the UK, including Coventry, Greater Manchester and Lancashire and Cumbria, Waltham Forest and Luton. As well as places, IHE is also working with the community and voluntary sector, health care organisations and businesses.
