Who are “Inclusion Health” groups?

A number of groups in the UK experience poor health outcomes across a range of indicators including self-reported health, life expectancy and morbidity. The reasons vary by group, but include the effects of stigmatisation and discrimination, the impact of chaotic lifestyles and low health aspirations, the complex nature of health systems and the effects of the wider social determinants of health.

The groups experiencing the worst health inequalities include:

  • Gypsies and Travellers,
  • homeless people,
  • vulnerable migrants,
  • sex workers,
  • people in contact with the criminal justice system,
  • people with learning disabilities and more.
