This briefing paper from the University of Manchester and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation examines ethnicity and health inequalities between 1991 to 2011:
Discover More Which ethnic groups have the poorest health.pdf
A section of the introductory paragraph should be used as the basis for discussion and investigation after looking over the plethora of data presented
here. That is, “Ethnic health inequalities can be reduced by improvements in the social status and living conditions of disadvantaged groups”. Students
can investigate initiatives that have been proposed and/or introduced in an attempt to address the health inequalities presented here. Perhaps, for
example, students live in an area of the country with a transient traveller community. Research could take the form of investigating ways in which
the local Clinical Commissioning Group has tried to engage with this part of the population.
