Policy briefs to increase equality in health
25 Nov 2019
This report contains three policy briefs on interventions that aim to increase equality in health. The policy briefs highlights supporting school completion, employment of individuals with severe mental health problems and increasing tobacco taxes.
The fact that inequalities in health by socioeconomic position have substantially widened over time in the Nordic countries is something that worries Nordic public health researchers as well as politicians and policy makers. To exchange knowledge and find new ways of tackling health inequalities is therefore a priority in the Nordic cooperation.
These policy briefs were produced in the Nordic project Equal Health – Prerequisite at National Level. The project is a part of The Nordic Arena for Public Health Issue’s work on reducing social inequalities in health in the Nordic region.
