England Marmot Reports

In November 2008, Professor Sir Michael Marmot was asked by then Secretary of State for Health to chair an independent review to propose the most effective evidence-based strategies for reducing health inequalities in England. In 2010 Fair Society, Healthy Lives (The Marmot Review) was published. This project listed 6 Marmot Principles, which would be developed and expanded in the following ten years.

In 2020 the Marmot Review 10 Years On was published. The report showed that for the first time in more than 100 years, life expectancy had failed to increase across the country, and for the poorest 10% of women in England, it had declined. Between 2010 and 2020 health inequalities in England had widened and the amount of time people spent in poor health had increased.

These two pioneering reports have driven the movement for health inequalities around the world and continue to inspire work and action on the social determinants of health. The policy points recommended in these two reports continue to influence and impact the IHE's current work and future goals for health equity in the UK and globally.
