The impact of social and economic inequalities on children’s health
A report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on a Fit and Healthy Childhood, March 2018.
These issues have been known about and discussed over many years – but this is the first time that a comprehensive report has been published that sets out in detail precisely where the inequalities lie and the possible solutions that should be considered. Although there is some unnecessary repetition, the summary of recommendations is definitely worth reading. As always with APPG reports, the question is what impact will this report have when the conduits for change remain so ill-defined and elusive?
