Racism, xenophobia, and discrimination are important influences on health globally, but have so far been overlooked by health researchers, policymakers, and practitioners, finds new UCL-led research. The four-paper series, published in The Lancet , examines how prejudice impacts the health of minoritised people across the globe and outlines the diverse pathways through which discrimination harms health, including directly impacting the body via stress responses, profoundly shaping living environments, and limiting individuals' opportunities to improve health.

Building standards failing to deliver healthy ventilation
Building standards are failing to ensure offices, shops, public buildings and homes provide healthy ventilation, say leading experts. In a report on air pollution by England's Chief Medical Officer, the panel of scientists and engineers describe a system where buildings were complying with the standards at the design phase but there was limited scrutiny to see if those standards were being met as the buildings went up, when in use or if they were adapted over time.
