What is “Inclusion Health”?

Inclusion Health is a field which seeks to prevent and address the health and social inequalities experienced by groups of people at risk of or living with extremely poor health as a result of poverty, marginalisation, multi-morbidity and social exclusion.

The reasons vary by group, but include the impact of discrimination and stigmatisation, 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, Roma and Travellers,
  • people experiencing homelessness,
  • vulnerable migrants,
  • sex workers,
  • people in contact with the criminal justice system,
  • people with learning disabilities and more.
