Bristol Festival of Ideas: Danny Dorling

Tuesday 05 March 2013, 17:15

Danny Dorling discusses Unequal Health as these inequalities have now reached an extent not seen for over a century in the USA and the UK.

Most peoples' health is much better now than then, but the gaps in life expectancy between regions, cities, and between neighbourhoods within cities now surpass the worst measures over the last hundred years. In almost all other affluent countries, inequalities in health are lower and people live longer. In Unequal Health: The Scandal of Our Times, Danny Dorling describes the current extent of inequalities in health as the scandal of our times and calls for immediate action to reduce them in the near future.
