We are delighted to announce that we have joined the Inequalities in Health Alliance (IHA). The IHA is a coalition, and we are pleased to stand alongside dozens of other not-for-profit organisations working in health, social care and beyond as we collectively campaign for a cross-government strategy to reduce health inequalities.
The IHA believes that the needs of vulnerable people must always be considered when making policy, and that the potential impact of policies on the poorest in society should be weighed up before final decisions are made in Westminster and Whitehall. We wholeheartedly agree with this approach and think it has particular relevance to our work, as many vulnerable people may find themselves at particular risk of malnutrition or struggling to access the most appropriate and timely nutritional care.
We look forward to working together with our IHA colleagues to continue to raise awareness of health inequalities and to call for change where it is needed.
