Placing health equity at the heart of the COVID-19 sustainable response and recovery: Building prosperous lives for all in Wales -Welsh Health Equity Status Report (WHESRi)

This is the first Welsh Health Equity Status Report initiative (WHESRi) report, published by the World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Centre at Public Health Wales.  It has been developed in close collaboration with the Welsh Government and the WHO as part of a global initiative to tackle health inequities. The report is intended to help inform a sustainable response and recovery from COVID-19 in Wales, reinforcing our understanding of the strong relationships between individual, community and societal well-being as well as links with the wider economy.

The report aims to improve understanding of the wider, less immediately visible, impacts of COVID-19 on issues such as poverty and deprivation, social exclusion, unemployment, education, the digital divide, harmful housing and working conditions, violence and crime. It also highlights the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on specific groups such as children and young people, women, key workers and ethnic minorities.
