12.30 - 13.00     Due North: A Fairer Start for Children in the North of England by Prof David Taylor Robinson

We know that socio-economic disadvantage worsens child health, and poor child health tracks forward to influence health and development in later life. Thus a life course perspective is particularly important when developing public policies. I’ll present an overview of the work I’ve been involved with to better understand pathways to inequalities in child health across a range of conditions; and our work to influence policies to improve child health outcomes, for instance our work on the Public Health England commissioned review "Due North".
