We have just published our Older People Briefing Paper. The brief is by Dr Dharmi Kapadia, Lecturer in Sociology, The University of Manchester. It explores the impact of Covid-19 on older people particularly as age has been a predominate risk factor for those affected by Covid-19, and will consider the prevalence of health conditions that black and minority ethnic older people experience..
“Despite the vulnerable position of ethnic minority older people, there has been very little research in the UK focusing on how this groupʼs health and socioeconomic circumstances have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the associated lockdowns, from March 2020 to the present day.
This work is part of our Race Equity Collaboratives project which is a set of collaborations created to develop an evidence-led narrative and make practical recommendations to better ensure that the recovery phase from COVID-19 in the UK addresses racial inequity.
