Find out how the strategy was developed

The GLA has worked with a wide range of stakeholders to develop this strategy. Our work in London is set against the backdrop of a national programme to reduce health inequalities, which ran to 2010, and has developed at the same time as the Marmot review of health inequalities in England post 2010. It is based on the best available evidence and over 600 organisations were engaged during its development.

The stages of this process are outlined below, along with links to key publications:
