Update from NIHR Health Determinants Research Collaboration Coventry

A new short film explains the purpose of the collaboration

“If two babies are born in Coventry today, they would have a life expectancy  that differs of ten years because of the environment in which they're born into. The health inequalities that exist in Coventry, are completely unacceptable and unjust.”

By creating a dynamic and sustainable research infrastructure and working with the people of Coventry to identify their needs and priorities, HDRC Coventry aims to “stimulate, support and disseminate research to identify evidence-based solutions to the factors impacting people’s health.”

Voluntary Action Coventry is proud to be a member of the HDRC Coventry. Please watch the short video above to hear from those involved in research and the Coventry Health Determinants Research Collaboration about the purpose of the programme and why it is so important.

The HDRC Coventry is a collaboration between Coventry City Council, Coventry University, University of Warwick and a range of partners within the community and voluntary sectors, with support from University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust and University College London.
