Since it was first published in early 2021, the RBI has demonstrated that access to better jobs, better housing, thriving communities, and strong economic prosperity are the key drivers of levelling up the country and improving people’s lives. These drivers are underpinned by the need for people to be living in good health. Whilst the UK aggregated score on the RBI’s Health Index has remained flat since the last wave of the RBI, the overall score has fallen and inequalities have widened since 2021, with differences linked to income, region and age. The latest RBI Report explores these changes and highlights the importance of a collaborative approach across stakeholders to create the conditions for better health for everyone.
