Title:
The Social and Health Inequalities Agenda
Authors:
Mabhala, Mzwandile A. ( 0000-0003-1350-7065 )
Abstract:
How much the health and well-being of individuals and populations can be improved depends upon understanding the wider determinants of health and the social and health inequalities agenda. This chapter aims to build on the concepts introduced in chapter one and to explore the differences in health outcomes globally and across the UK. This will be achieved through an examination of up-to-date policy and publications such as Fair Society, Fair Lives – The Marmot Review (Department of Health [DH] 2010), Closing the Gap in a Generation (World Health Organization [WHO] 2008b), and The Impact of Inequality (Wilkinson 2005). Health outcomes can be measured, but how can health inequalities be reduced and health and well-being improved? What are the economic implications of impaired health, and how can strategic planning improve health and reduce inequalities?
