The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities and given rise to new ones. Tackling health and economic inequalities in the post-pandemic United Kingdom effectively will require policies based on solid evidence. The purpose of this symposium is to provide a multi-disciplinary forum focusing on effective ways to ‘level up’, from what is known to evidence gaps that future research should address. The symposium will bring together perspectives on these issues from leading health economists and epidemiologists. They will present recent evidence and discuss some of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
An NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre event hosted by the University of Oxford Health Economics Research Centre.
