Meet the team

Professor Kate Pickett and Sarwat Shah will work with themes and individual project staff to help them understand the impact of their work programme on health inequalities. We can provide input at any operational stage through grant writing and design, recruitment, measurement, intervention and follow-up. Strategies are various and projects-specific. They involve identification of potentially vulnerable groups, monitoring of a concern, help with re-design, and advice on equality of measurement.
