Turning the Tide strategy

There are some specific challenges which have been recognised for Black and Ethnic Minority communities in the South East region. In response to Covid-19, a strategy, Turning the Tide (TT), has been developed with the aim of addressing health and employment, racial and wider inequalities. An implementation panel jointly led by Shahana Ramsden and Anne Eden has been established to implement the strategy to ensure progress against its objectives and to deliver lasting change.

The strategy, developed by Scott Durairaj, was informed by the PHE report: Beyond the data: Understanding the impact of COVID-19 on BAME groups which is referenced in the strategy. Although developed in response to COVID-19, the strategy has also informed our wider approach in the South East to reducing racial inequalities in health.
