Health inequalities: a public health challenge for European policy-makers

Taking into consideration the complexity of challenges that health inequalities represent for EU policy makers within the next five years, the present paper, published by the European Health Alliance (EPHA), intends to analyse the social and environmental determinants causing health and social disparities within EU Member States focusing on some public health, social and environmental issues. It aims to propose solutions that can facilitate the adoption of a new policy approach tackling health inequalities in social, economic and environmental policies addressing the needs of socio-economic groups vulnerable to health disparities.
