SUMMARY OF RESEARCH INTEREST

1.Adult obesity and how covid19 has exacebated the mental well-being in the Black Asian Ethnic Minorites(BAME) individuals in UK and globally.Covid-19 has disproportionately affected ethnic minority groups in developed countries. Public Health England report, the mortality risk from covid-19 among ethnic minority groups is twice that of white British patients after potential confounding factors such as age, sex, income, education, housing tenure, and area deprivation have been taken into account.

2.Health inequalities:Poor health and poverty do go hand-in-hand. But high levels of inequality, the epidemiological research shows, negatively affect the health of even the affluent, mainly because, researchers contend, inequality reduces social cohesion, a dynamic that leads to more stress, fear, and insecurity for everyone.Rising prevalence of non-communicable diseases and conditions (such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, some cancers, and neurodegenerative conditions) are a particular concern, as is the increasing prevalence of people developing multiple long-term conditions, across both physical and mental health. Together, this creates an economic and health burden of disease that outweighs the impact of infectious diseases. This is a complex area for both research and policy, with multiple interacting factors driving inequalities. Public Health England has published action plans and outlined interventions that can be used to improve outcomes. The extent to which national and local policies are driving positive change equitably across mental and physical health domains is an area of concern. The COVID-19 pandemic has cast renewed focus on the persistent social gradient for both mental and physical health, with inequality reported in terms of health outcomes and access to preventive measures and social conditions to minimise the risk of infection. 

3.Communicable diseases:Socioeconomic, environmental and behavioural factors, as well as international travel and migration, foster and increase the spread of communicable diseases. Vaccine-preventable, foodborne, zoonotic, health care-related and communicable diseases pose significant threats to human health and may sometimes threaten international health security.Disease examples of communicable diseases are:

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19),Hepatitis,HIV/AIDS,Influenza,Measles and rubella,Poliomyelitis,Sexually transmitted infections and Tuberculosis.
