Join Policy@Manchester and Centre for Cities on Wednesday 24 February to hear about how health inequalities affect productivity - and how devolution could help
What is the relationship between health inequalities, unemployment and the productivity of places? How should central and local government be addressing these issues?
The pandemic has highlighted the extent of health inequality across the UK, while restrictions needed to control the spread have led to an increase in urban unemployment. Fixing the UK's productivity problem will, meanwhile, be central to delivering the Government's ambition of 'levelling up'.
This event will examine the links between productivity, people's health and their access to the labour market - and the role for local government in joining up policy to help get people back to work.
At this event you will hear from:
- Elena Magrini, Senior Analyst, Centre for Cities
- Dr Luke Munford, Lecturer in Health Economics, The University of Manchester
