This report builds on “Health Equity in England: The Marmot Review 10 Years On”, published in February 2020 – a review of what had happened to health and health inequalities in the decade since the publication of the “2010 Marmot Review, Fair Society, Healthy Lives“.

The 2020 report included a series of recommendations, addressing the social determinants of health, for how things could and should improve. The COVID-19 crisis, the pandemic and associated social and economic response, has made such action even more important.
Therefore the key aims of this latest report are:
• To examine inequalities in COVID-19 mortality, with particular focus on members of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic groups alongside continued attention to the social gradient in health.
• To show the effects that the pandemic, and the societal response, have had on social and economic inequalities and effects on mental and physical health, and their likely effects on health inequalities in the future.
• To make recommendations for action in the long, medium and short term.
