Defining inequalities in health and health care: A short introduction from the LHO

Creator:

Aspinall P

Subject Keywords: Health inequalities
Type: Report
Region: United Kingdom
Description:

Health inequalities in society have been widely documented in the UK over the last half century, most recently in the Black (DHSS 1980) and Acheson (1998) reports. While there have been substantial improvements in health over this period, these inequalities have been persistent and difficult to change. Moreover, they have been shown to start at the earliest stage in life, to characterise all transitions in life, and to persist into subsequent generations. As health inequalities have been shown to be amenable to change, they are regarded as unacceptable and their amelioration has, therefore, become a top priority for the UK Government.
