TAP/APPG on poverty - Seminar on health equality in wake of two unprecedented rises in death rates
For immediate release, date: 17/07/17
HEALTH EQUALITY SEMINAR COMES IN THE WAKE OF TWO UNPRECEDENTED RISES IN DEATH RATES.
Taxpayers Against Poverty/APPG on Poverty seminar on health equality - 6-8 pm Thursday 20th July, Macmillan Room, Portcullis House, Westminster
How many more infant deaths, how much more diminished life expectancy does there have to be before UK national and local governments accept the overwhelming and undeniable evidence that low incomes impact on mental and physical health? Some 52,400 more deaths were reported by the ONS to have occurred in the year to June 2015 as compared to the same period a year before.
The anti-poverty organisation sponsors the seminar with the APPG on Poverty. It follows TAP's blog series on health inequality with a seminar that will look to tackle the stark reality of health inequality in modern Britain. Our speakers will examine the socio-economic factors that govern life chances. UK citizens are increasingly left at the mercy of a ruthless postcode lottery that dictates mortality rates and incidence of low birth-weight. The seminar will demonstrate why socioeconomic status is at least as big a threat to mental and physical health as obesity.
