Official Page

The group examines the effects of all national public policy on the health of the UK population with an emphasis on health inequalities between different population groups. It provides a discussion forum for parliamentarians and acts as a source of well-evidenced information on social, health and public health issues.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
