Research report published on the Health Behaviour of School Aged Children (HBSC England)

Director of ICCHNR Professor Sally Kendall has led the HBSC England study that found important findings for young people, their carers and health providers especially school nurses, health promotion and primary care nurses and community mental health nurses with responsibility for young people. We found that in England 15 year old girls from low income families were most likely to experience loneliness, low mood and low self-reported life satisfaction, amongst many other variables. HBSC is conducted every four years as part of an international collaboration of 51 countries under the auspices of the World Health Organisation. In international comparative analysis young people from England fared worse on almost every variable than young people globally.

Tests to assess newborns’ health not effective for BAME babies in UK

Prof Gina Awoko Higginbottom MBE

Emeritus Professor of Ethnicity and Community Health, School of Health Sciences, University of Nottingham

Gina has been part of an amazing team for the Apgar research.

The NHS Race and Health Observatory, in collaboration with Sheffield Hallam and Nottingham University, has undertaken a comprehensive review of neonatal assessment and practice in Black, Asian, and minority ethnic newborns. Previous studies have shown that Black, Asian, and minority ethnic mothers and babies are more likely to experience adverse outcomes compared to their White counterparts. It is crucial that we understand how current care practices contribute to these disparities and make the necessary improvements to ensure the best chances of survival and a good quality of life for every baby.

The report we are sharing today represents a significant milestone in addressing neonatal care within the context of diverse cultural backgrounds and ethnic health inequalities. It delves into the unique challenges faced by Black, Asian, and minority ethnic newborns and offers valuable insights to improve assessment and care practices. The findings and recommendations within this report have the potential to drive policy changes and transform medical practices, ultimately leading to better health outcomes.
