Cancer and equality
The National Cancer Intelligence Network (NCIN) has published Cancer and equality groups: key metrics 2015 report. This is the third report published for the National Cancer Equality Initiative (NCEI) by the NCIN on cancer and equality groups. It builds on previous reports to give a clear picture of where there are differences between groups in aspects of cancer patients’ diagnosis, care and outcomes. Although we are continuing to make gains in cancer survival, the 2015 report reminds us that there are still some stark health inequalities for people with cancer.
Inequalities in life expectancy
The Kings Fund has published Inequalities in life expectancy: changes over time and implications for policy. This report assesses how the Marmot curve (the relationship between income deprivation and life expectancy) has changed over time and what this tells us about the success or otherwise of government policy on inequalities in health over the period 1999–2003 to 2006–10.
This study brings together data on a wide array of variables for 6,700 areas of England on wider determinants, lifestyles, demographics and public service variables widely thought to be significant in determining health and health inequalities.
Prevalence of dementia in population groups
Public Health England has published Prevalence of dementia in population groups by protected characteristics: a systematic review of the literature. This review examines how common dementia is and how much it varies between groups with the following characteristics: socio-economic position, race or ethnic group, religion, gender, sexual orientation and disability. This review builds on previous work by the Department of Health in 2010 to 2011, as part of the development of the Dementia Equalities Action Plan (DH, 2011).
