Click here to download “Start well, stay well” could sum up our approach to improving health and reducing inequalities.  It is also where the evidence tells us we should go if we are serious about making a difference to the lives of Southampton people. While the health of people living in Southampton continues to improve and we are living longer, not all of these extra years of life are lived in good health or free from disability. Some health indicators in childhood show that we are not yet succeeding in our aim to give every young person the best possible start in life. There has also been limited progress in narrowing the health gap between the wealthy and those who are on low incomes, and many challenges remain or have increased in significance. This report focuses on the first 1,000 days of life; the lead up to conception, pregnancy and the first two years of life.  This period is critical to future health and wellbeing and is the time when there are huge opportunities to influence outcomes for the better.
