Florence Jusot (Irdes - LEGOS), Zeynep Or (Irdes)
Project implementation period: 2005 - 2008
The aim of this project is to facilitate mutual learning by collecting and analysing information from different European
countries that will help policy-makers at the European and national level to develop rational strategies for tackling
socioeconomic inequalities in health.
The specific objectives are:
- To develop and collect health inequalities indicators, and to provide bench-marking data on inequalities in health
and health determinants to participating countries;
- To assess evidence on the effectiveness of policies and interventions to tackle the determinants of health inequalities,
and to make recommendations on strategies for reducing health inequalities in participating countries;
- To disseminate the results, and to develop a proposal for a permanent European clearing house on tackling health inequalities.
