How We Live Next: Health – Sir Michael Marmot

Saturday 13th March 11:30am

Taking action to reduce health inequalities is a matter of social justice. In developing strategies for this we need to confront the social gradient in health not just the difference between the worst off and everybody else. There is clear evidence when we look across countries that national policies make a difference and that much can be done in cities, towns and local areas. The evidence shows that economic circumstances are important but are not the only drivers of health inequalities. But policies and interventions must not be confined to the health care system; they need to address the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. Tackling the health gap will take action, based on sound evidence, across the whole of society.

The talk will be followed by a conversation and Q&A. Questions can be submitted in advance.

Sir Michael Marmot is Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health at UCL. He chaired the WHO Commission on The Social Determinants of Health (2005–8); its recommendations have been adopted by the World Health Assembly and taken up by many countries. The recommendations of his influential British Government report on health inequalities – the Marmot Review – are now being implemented in three-quarters of local authorities in England. His books include The Health Gap (2015).
