How to find out information about work on reducing the health inequalities experienced by people with a learning disability

Thursday, 25th May 2017

The Improving Health and Lives (IHaL) website has now been archived and will no longer be updated, so it is important to know where to go to find out information about the health inequalities experienced by people with a learning disability, and the work that is happening around this.

The website Public Health England have used to share information about their work on reducing the health inequalities experienced by people with a learning disability, www.improvinghealthandlives.org or www.ihal.org has now been archived and will no longer be updated. It will continue to be available on the national archive, here https://tinyurl.com/ihalarchive.

New information being published by the learning disability team at Public Health England (PHE) will increasingly be published on www.gov.uk. For example, the latest People with Learning Disabilities in England report is available here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/people-with-learning-disabilities-in-england-2015 and most recent reasonable adjustments information here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/reasonable-adjustments-for-people-with-learning-disabilities.

All learning disability related information published by government departments can be found on www.gov.uk by searching ‘learning disability’. This can be narrowed down to the work PHE have published by selecting Public Health England from the drop down list of organisations.
