Health inequalities: place-based approaches to reduce inequalities

Source By: Public Health England

Public Health England has published guidelines to support local action on health inequalities.


In England today there is a 19 year gap in healthy life expectancy between the most and least affluent areas of the country. It is a stark symbol of social injustice that those living in the most deprived communities spend more years in ill health and die sooner.


To help tackle this huge challenge at local level, Public Health England, the Association of Directors of Public Health and the Local Government Association has created ‘Place-based approaches for health inequalities’, information, tools and resources designed to complement the excellent work already taking place at local level and support further co-ordinated action between local government, the NHS and the voluntary and community sector. You can find the guidelines here.
