Film shows how to tackle unequal access to food and improve health in our community

The Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted unequal access to nutritious and affordable food in the East of England. We need to tackle this and improve support for families on a low income and those worst affected by the pandemic.

A new animated film and digital illustration from researchers at the University of Hertfordshire and NIHR ARC East of England shows recent research findings and shares ideas to prevent poor health with community engagement and co-produced approaches.

They capture key insights from local communities and learnings from the webinar ‘Prioritising Prevention: Strengthening Communities’ co-hosted in March 2021 by the NIHR Applied Research Collaboration East of England (ARC EoE), the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP) and the Population Health Research Hub East of England (PHResH EoE).
