Coronavirus, health inequalities & supporting BAME communities

Diverse hands


BAME advisory group chairs explain their vital contribution to the taskforce report

Throughout this coronavirus pandemic, we have been reminded again of the devastating impact societal inequalities have had on the health and wellbeing of Black, Asian and ethnically diverse (BAME) citizens.

The recent Public Health England report highlighted the need for us to act and consider the unacceptable impact such inequalities have always had on our communities. 

Co-chairs Tricia Pereira and Cedi Frederick set out their roles in a crucial endeavour to address BAME health inequalities, revealed as never before by this unwelcome and persistent pandemic.
