Site Design by Evolution Edge


The COVID19 pandemic has created a set of circumstances like nothing that has been seen by the world’s population. Not only is there the immediate impact of high numbers of deaths but the personal, social, economic and political repercussions are going to be felt for years to come. The Politics of Health Group has long been campaigning to raise the profile of the causes and consequences of political and economic decision making on health and particularly on the differentials in health outcomes that these have created.

We are concerned to maintain a good record of the reality of the pandemic and have set up this repository as a resource for anyone who wishes to use it.

In line with our concerns it focuses on evidence and opinion pieces that highlight:-
