Fairer Health for All
Fairer Health for All is our response to ‘Build Back Fairer’ – a set of national and city-region ambitions and recommendations by the Institute of Health Equity and the Independent Equality Commission. We commissioned ‘Build Back Fairer’ in the aftermath of COVID-19 to address root causes of ill health and inequalities, and to advance equalities across Greater Manchester.
More than a mantra or a rally cry, Fairer Health for All is a system-wide commitment and framework for reducing health inequalities and tackling inequalities across the wider, social determinants of health. It describes how we will create a greener, fairer, more prosperous city-region.
We have co-produced Fairer Health for All over the past fifteen months, alongside our NHS Greater Manchester’s Integrated Care Partnership strategy and our Five Year Joint Forward Plan for delivery of that strategy. It prioritises co-ordinated action to deliver against the six strategy missions.
The framework sets out our ambition for doing things differently; building a society based on the principles of social justice, to reduce inequalities of income and wealth, to build a wellbeing economy and achieve greater health equity.
Our Fairer Health for All framework provides tools and resources for how we can collaborate, share, and learn across the system to ensure people have the best possible health as well as wellbeing, no matter who they are or where they live.
The Fairer Health for All Delivery Framework was approved by the ICB Board on the 17th January. You can access this framework on the link below.
