Creator:

Institute of Health Equity

Subject Keywords: Health, Life Expectancy, Health Gap, Deprived Areas
Catalogue: Research and Evaluation
Report
Type: Report
Region: England
Description:

This report has been produced by the Institute of Health Equity and commissioned by the Health Foundation to mark 10 years on from the landmark study Fair Society, Healthy Lives (The Marmot Review).

The report highlights that:

  • people can expect to spend more of their lives in poor health
  • improvements to life expectancy have stalled, and declined for the poorest 10% of women
  • the health gap has grown between wealthy and deprived areas 
  • place matters – living in a deprived area of the North East is worse for your health than living in a similarly deprived area in London, to the extent that life expectancy is nearly five years less.

Read the Health Foundation's full response.

Commissioned by the Health Foundation, the Institute of Health Equity is working to examine progress in addressing health inequalities in England and propose recommendations for future action.

Key Points

  • Published in 2010, The Marmot Review: Fair Society, Healthy Lives was a landmark study of health inequalities in England.
  • While there has been progress in some areas since 2010, there is growing evidence that health inequalities are widening and life expectancy is stalling.
  • The Health Foundation commissioned Professor Sir Michael Marmot and his team at the Institute of Health Equity to examine progress in addressing health inequalities in England and propose recommendations for future action.
