Inequalities

The Public Health Outcomes Framework focuses the whole system on achieving positive health outcomes for the population and reducing inequalities in health. The majority of indicators in this framework have the potential to impact on inequalities and we aspire to make it possible for all indicators to be disaggregated by equalities characteristics and by socioeconomic analysis wherever possible in order to support work locally to reduce in-area health inequalities where these persist. The inequalities tab of the data tool is currently under development and in this first phase we have made available some national level inequalities data. Also available is a technical user guide for the overarching indicators.

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) Public Health Outcomes Framework Companion Document

This work has been conducted by a partnership of organisations on a voluntary basis with the support of the Department of Health and Public Health England. While there remain many gaps in the data, we hope this publication will go some way towards helping commissioners understand how to best address health inequalities within LGBT communities in their area www.lgf.org.uk/phof.
