Tackling healthcare inequalities related to race
We developed the first web-site for the NHS focussing specifically race and health www.raceforhealth.org
Inequalities in health outcomes are most pronounced around race and ethnicity, having a huge impact on conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers and mental health.
Race for Health was a highly innovative DH programme that tried to improve practice across the country. On the Race for Health website, we have tried to save a lot of the learning so, when the will is there, real action can be taken to pursue this agenda more vigorously.
