Two decades on: the continuing health disadvantage of South Asian elders

Two decades on: the continuing health disadvantage of South Asian elders
Two decades on: the continuing health disadvantage of South Asian elders
In a landmark study, Evandrou (2000) highlighted the existence of significant differences in health status between ethnic elders in the UK, with the greatest health disadvantage being experienced by older people of South Asian heritage (Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi). In the wake of the McPherson Report and the Acheson Inquiry (Acheson, 1998), in the closing moments of the twentieth century, the Government reaffirmed the priority of tackling ethnic inequalities in health, putting a renewed focus on the social determinants of health (DH, 1999). This report draws upon recently available survey data in order to update Evandrou’s earlier analysis to investigate the progress that has been made since then.

Abstract

In a landmark study, Evandrou (2000) highlighted the existence of significant differences in health status between ethnic elders in the UK, with the greatest health disadvantage being experienced by older people of South Asian heritage (Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi). In the wake of the McPherson Report and the Acheson Inquiry (Acheson, 1998), in the closing moments of the twentieth century, the Government reaffirmed the priority of tackling ethnic inequalities in health, putting a renewed focus on the social determinants of health (DH, 1999). This report draws upon recently available survey data in order to update Evandrou’s earlier analysis to investigate the progress that has been made since then.
