Poverty and Health

This is a new subcommittee this year! The overall aim of this subcommittee is to reduce health inequalities based on poverty in healthcare and public health.

 

We'll most likely focus on the following issues: mental health and homelessness and how wealth inequality is impacting the health of people in Cambridge.

 

We will educate ourselves and present findings in blog posts or presentations to the general committee. Following this we can find ways for action to address this in Cambridge e.g. through awareness events (panels, discussions); advocacy campaigns (e.g. working with living wage Cambridge) or through fundraising.
