How COVID-19 exposes the underlying housing and health inequalities in society

Understanding What Works

In this session, we explore what it will take to ensure we don't return to business as usual in a post-pandemic society: that appropriate housing is seen as a critical factor in health and wellbeing is at the top of the agenda.

The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified inequalities in society across the world. Most notably in the UK, it has exposed the impact of both years of austerity and of structural racism, according to Sir Michael Marmot, a leading global advocate for action on the social determinants of health and health inequalities. Join us as we explore what it will take to ensure we don't return to business as usual in a post-pandemic society.
