Glasgow is known for extreme health differences between its neighbourhoods, but what is the origin of these and how far back do they go?

Glasgow is known for its extreme health inequalities, but what is the origin of these and how far back do they go? How has incidence of different infectious diseases changed over time? How much influence has neighbourhood had on the order in which incidence from different infectious diseases has (generally) fallen over time, or the distribution of causes of mortality? How have health in equalities been affected by big ‘shocks’ such as infectious disease outbreaks, wars, and economic recessions? How have they been influenced by policies such as immunisation and the introduction of universal healthcare via the NHS? How much do socioeconomic conditions matter for health and has this changed over time? These are the questions that we will try to answer in this project.
