Healthcare in Europe should be equally accessible to all, but differences in gender, birthplace, and/or socioeconomic background often correlate with different standards in care. The groundbreaking Reducing Health Inequalities report maps this unequal healthcare environment , its determinants, and its costs to society. A key takeaway from the report is that differences in health between and within countries are attributable not only to social and health policies, but also depend on economic policy and the social determinants of health.

Please join us as we discuss the empirical findings of the report and the holistic policy changes needed to address increasingly unequal healthcare. Please see the full launch program attached, complete with a list of speakers.

Richard Wilkinson, Professor Emeritus, University of Nottingham, author of “The Spirit Level” (2008) and “The Inner Level” (2018) will present “Lower incomes, lower health: why?”
