What makes Muslims sick and (why) does it matter?
Gavin de Beer Lecture Theatre |
Gower Street | WC1E 6BT |
Dr Saffron Karlsen, Senior Research Fellow, UCL, Epidemiology
Research investigating the relationships between culture and health frequently adopts an ethnic focus, and exposes considerable variations in health experience between different ethnic groups. However, such work ignores an important dimension to these inequalities which could provide valuable insight into the drivers of these trends: religion. This presentation will describe the health disadvantage experienced by Muslims (with a range of ethnic backgrounds) compared with other ethnic/religious groups in the UK, and the extent to which these differences may be considered driven by genetic/biological or cultural/behavioural factors, or by the social/structural forces which produce socioeconomic disadvantage and social exclusion.
