Power as a health and social justice issue

Completed Project

Calendar icon Communities, Inequalities

Over 2017-18 we collaborated with NHS Health Scotland (now Public Health Scotland) to develop a short animation on power as a health and social justice issue. It builds on work about the theory and evidence relating to power as a fundamental cause of health inequalities and GCPH work on community engagement and empowerment. This work was carried out through the Public Health Evidence Network (PHEN).

The aim of the animation was to increase understanding of the importance of power in shaping social and health inequalities. We hope it will help people working in the public and third sector to consider how they can support communities to have more power. 

The film was produced as plans to implement the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act were developing and as a tool that could help stimulate discussion about the opportunities that the Act brings to share power more equally in communities across Scotland.
