Public Health Disrupted: People and Power | UCL Minds

In public health, we often refer to 'hard to reach' groups, but are we doing enough to listen to them? Hear from the co-founders of Five X More, and UCL academic Dr Carol Rivas, to explore the role of discrimination and structural disadvantage in the health inequalities experienced by different marginalised groups in the UK, and the incredible work they are doing to change this.  Black women in the UK have a fourfold* higher risk of dying in pregnancy in comparison to white women. Five X More co-founders Tinuke and Clo, discuss the action they are taking to address this disparity. Carol shares her work on so-called hidden disabilities, their intersection with race, ethnicity and migrant status, and on developing tools that empower the voices of marginalised groups. This podcast series from UCL Health of the Public is about public health, but more importantly, it’s about the systems that need disrupting to make public health better.
