Will you continue to commit to a “health in all policies approach” throughout your second term as Mayor?

I have long been committed to a health in all policies approach. This is demonstrated by the successful implementation of this approach, which includes our continuing work to improve air quality, the high fat, salt, sugar advertising ban, establishing a prevention approach to violence reduction, and protecting the health of the homeless through our COVID-19 response.

I remain fully committed to a health in all policies approach throughout my second term, particularly to address the health inequalities further exposed by the pandemic. This is why health and wellbeing is one of the cross-cutting principles of our Recovery Programme.
