FPH welcomes the Marmot Review Final Report on health inequalities
Professor Alan Maryon-Davis, FPH President, said: “Fundamentally, we need to work together to create opportunities and remove barriers to help people help themselves to better health and wellbeing. A fairer society is a healthier society and an economically stronger society.
But this report is not just about fairness and opportunity - essential though these things are. It's also about hard-nosed investment in preventive strategies that really pay off. It's about seeing people's health and wellbeing as real assets, especially in these tough economic times.”
