Tackling Inequalities: The effect of Covid-19 on inequalities

The social, economic and political effects of inequalities in society are vast and can have a major impact on people’s health and well-being. This has been especially evident during the ongoing pandemic, which has highlighted these discrepancies even more.

Academics at Alliance Manchester Business School continue to research the effects of inequalities on health, in order to address these differences in society.

  • The Data Visualisation Observatory at AMBS launched a platform that enables users to track Covid-19 levels across Greater Manchester. With the ability to link a number of diverse datasets such as multiple deprivation indices, air pollution, and local amenities such as schools and hospitals, this could help city health chiefs gain a better understanding of why specific areas of the city might be more prone to higher levels of infections than others.
