The latest London Health Inequalities Strategy report has been launched by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and Public Health Director for London, Professor Kevin Fenton, following a London Health Board meeting last night. The annual report highlights the challenges in London and progress to date, including the development of a London anti-racist learning hub.
A key pledge to support London action on tackling structural racism as a determinant of health – by organisations in their undertaking to be anti-racist – is part of the Mayoral commitment to healthy communities. The Greater London Authority has secured commitment from health and care partners and funding for the first 18 months of the London anti-racist learning hub. Scoping has been completed on the hub, working with a range of London stakeholders, and the authority is currently in the process of co-designing the hub with the Race Equality Foundation.
