Local action on health inequalities: practice resources
These documents explain factors contributing to inequality in public health and set out methods for local bodies to reduce them.
The Marmot Review (2010) made a range of recommendations to reduce health inequalities in England.
Building on the Review, the UCL Institute of Health Equity has produced 4 papers which include evidence, and examples of practical action that can be taken at a local level to reduce health inequalities. They are designed for people working in local services, particularly:
- directors of public health and public health teams
- people working in local authorities services that may influence health and wellbeing, such as planning
- health and wellbeing boards
These practice resources build on a series of papers published in 2014 to support local action on health inequalities.
