Evidence for Local Action on Reducing Health Inequalities (Public Health England / UCL IHE / BBC News)

Summary

Public Health England (PHE) has released a collection of evidence papers on the social determinants of poor health, to support interventions on the social issues which result in health inequalities. Practical advice, and examples of local interventions shown to improve health, are supplied, covering the entire lifecourse.

These reports, collectively also known as the “Local Action on Health Inequalities Series”, were commissioned by Public Health England from the UCL Institute of Health Equity.

The topics relate broadly to the policy objectives of the Marmot Review (2010); the practical guidance supplied in this series offers a focus for action at local level to improve health equity, thereby potentially enabling people to enjoy healthier lifestyles with improved long-term outcomes. The UCL Institute of Health Equity has itself released the main set of landmark evidence reviews and briefing papers, with some additional detailed information sources and a set of contents pages of their own.
