New report shows stark health disparities in the UK

A new report on UK health disparities, from Economist Impact and ViiV Healthcare, has set out actions needed to address the differences which negatively impact life expectancy and the quality of life of particular groups.

Health inequality stems from a variety of factors, such as a person’s socio-economic situation, living conditions, or individual characteristics such as race or sexuality. In London, life expectancy varies between boroughs by as much as 19 years.

Dr Nneka Nwokolo spoke about the impact of health disparities in the capital and UK-wide, and what needs to be done to address it.
