Welcome to the Fairer Health for All Academy

The Fairer Health for All Academy provides a shared space for learning, innovation and collaboration with the aim of tackling health inequalities. 

The Academy as well as the Health and Care Intelligence Hub, is part of our approach to enable adaptive capability for population health management across our people, systems and analysis, to enable the adjacent levers, fundamental to achieving health equity.

The Academy brings together examples of best practice interventions, stories of change and training opportunities related to tackling inequalities across Greater Manchester as well as how we're delivering on the three enablers (above) needed to achieve health equity. 

What is Fairer Health for All?  

Fairer Health for All is Greater Manchester (GM)’s response to ‘Build Back Fairer’ – a set of national and city-region ambitions and recommendations by the Institute of Health Equity and the Independent Equality Commission in the aftermath of Covid-19, to address root causes of ill health and inequalities, as well as advance equalities across our city-region.

The Fairer Health for All framework details our shared approach to its delivery, including a consensus of the collective, priority action required to advance equity, inclusion, and sustainability and deliver health and care services that better meet the needs of the communities we serve.

The Health and Care Intelligence Hub

What is it?

Hosting a range of web-based intelligence tools, the hub has been co-designed to powerfully consolidate data and insights from public and VCFSE sector partners across the city-region into a single portal, enabling people and partners the

opportunity to:

• Bring data to life, understanding how health inequalities and variations in care change throughout a person’s life

Focus on ‘names not numbers’ by capturing the insight and stories of change from different communities

• Share wisdom and learning about which interventions work and why

• Deepen understanding on which communities have fewer opportunities to live healthily and are more likely to develop poor health by exploring the interactions between individual, family, and community factors

Ensure resources are targeted where needed, so policies and programmes can super-serve prioritised communities

Proactively work with communities to offer more opportunities to stay well and find and treat illnesses early

Measure progress, evaluate outcome indicators for different communities across various clinical pathways, and combine service data with community insights to understand reasons for poor access, unmet needs, and hidden harm

• Model the anticipated impact of policies/interventions on different communities, protected characteristics, and environmental sustainability as well as costs vs benefits

Fairer Health for All in Action

Case Studies

Fairer Health for All builds on neighbourhood, locality and system action and intelligence across Greater Manchester to tackle inequalities. Delivery is guided by the six missions of the GM Integrated Care Partnership Strategy; strengthening our communities, helping people get into, and stay in, good work, recovering core NHS and care services, helping people stay well and detecting illness earlier, supporting our workforce and our carers, and achieving financial sustainability.  See below examples of case studies for how we are delivering on some of these missions:
