Marmot Review website

In February 2010, the Marmot Review Team published ‘Fair Society, Healthy Lives’. The report and information about its implementation is available on the Marmot Review website.

The report was the culmination of a year long independent review into health inequalities in England which Professor Sir Michael Marmot was asked to chair by the Secretary of State for Health. The review proposes the most effective evidence-based strategies for reducing health inequalities in England from 2010. Since publication, the Review Team has seen, and worked to support, many developments based on the approach advocated by the review.
