Reducing health inequalities in Luton: A Marmot Town

The Institute of Health Equity (IHE) has worked with local authorities up and down England to do what they can, to implement the right approaches to reduce health inequalities. The public health department of Luton Borough Council commissioned IHE to support the local authority and other partners to act on health inequalities and become the first ‘Marmot Town’, joining the other ‘Marmot Places’ that are working with the IHE to prioritise health equity.

The report, Reducing Health Inequalities in Luton: A Marmot Town, is based on an assessment of data and local evidence and makes recommendations to reduce health inequalities and make Luton a fairer place to live, work, grow up and grow old in.
