Public Health Wales selected to take part in a programme on understanding the impact of COVID-19 on service change and health inequalities

Public Health Wales has been selected by the Health Foundation, an independent charity committed to bringing about better health and health care for people in the UK, to be part of its new COVID-19 research programme. The programme is seeking to understand the impact of the pandemic in two distinct areas:

  • how health and social care service delivery has changed in light of COVID-19
  • the impact of COVID-19 on health inequalities and the wider determinants of health.

The research programme is supporting 10 teams from across the UK with grants of between £100,000 and £200,000. Each project will run for up to 12 months.
