BME groups generally have less access to high-quality care along with poorer health and worse health outcomes than the overall population.
BME communities are more likely to have co-morbilities i.e. a combination of long term health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, COPD etc.
COVID-19 has shone a spotlight on health inequalities that have existed for several decades.
TIMC is recruiting and training BME Health Champions to engage with a minimum of 30 BME people to fight against Covid 19 and to improve general well-being. The champions will support TIMC programmes and be part of a wider Bhealthy campaign in run by Birmingham City Council. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
