Public views of health inequalities - an animation

Members of the public alongside researchers at Newcastle University spoke to people from different walks of life about what health inequalities mean to them. The key messages from these conversations are revealed in this animation.  Health inequalities are avoidable and unfair differences in health between different groups of people. Not only are some people living less healthy lives but also dying earlier than they should be. 

Everyone is welcome to use and share the animation, please acknowledge the UNFAIR project when doing so.
