Despite the well-established effects of places and communities on health and inequalities, little is known about the local effects of changes to economic systems and their impacts on food, housing, transport and welfare.
Local economic changes and external shocks are known to have major implications for all sectors.
It is also now clear that the health of the poor are most at risk when these shocks occur.
This major national research programme aims to assist local and national practitioners to understand how place-centred public health initiatives can be planned and delivered with limited and changing local resources to help reduce health inequalities. Further information on this research can be found here.
This webinar will present and discuss early findings from the programme and initiate a discussion of how they apply to the COVID and post-COVID era.
The webinar will include presentations on the latest research from the programme. Attendees can learn about:
– Local government funding cuts and their consequences for health equity
– Food outlet data and its uses for local authorities
– Food advertising in transport settings
– Attendees will have a chance to discuss findings and feedback to presenters
– Facilitated discussion on place-centred public health in the COVID era: how can researchers, policy-makers and the public hear each other views on priorities, problems and solutions.
