IHE article: ‘WHO European Review of Social Determinants of Health and the Health Divide

An executive summary of the Institute of Health Equity article ‘WHO European Review of Social Determinants of Health and the Health Divide’ was published by the Lancet in September 2012.  

The Review addresses inequities in health between and within countries across the 53 member states of the World Health Organization (WHO) European Region. It builds on the global evidence and recommends policies to ensure that progress can be made in reducing health inequities and the health divide across all countries, including those with low incomes. Action is needed—on the social determinants of health, across the life course, and in wider social and economic spheres—to achieve greater health equity and protect future generations.
