Power Inequality

Last Updated: 8/17/2017

A short web-based animation on Power as a health and social justice issue has been developed through a collaboration between Glasgow Centre for Population Health (GCPH) and NHS Health Scotland. This builds on Health Scotland’s work on the theory and evidence relating to power as a fundamental cause of health inequalities and GCPH’s work on community engagement and empowerment. We hope that this animation is useful to people working in the public and third sectors to increase understanding of the importance of power in shaping social and health inequalities and encourage them to consider how they can help support communities to have more power. This is particularly timely as plans to implement the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act are developing. The animation is a tool that can help stimulate further discussion about the opportunities that the Act brings to share power more equally in communities across Scotland.
