Health Inequalities Policy

Health Inequalities Policy

Health inequalities evidence-base and what might work at the local, national and global level to help reduce or remove these inequalities. A large chunk of this is done through the People's Health Movement, a grassroots social movement trying to improve Scotland's health and reduce health inequalities though community and grassroots movement building. I sit on the steering group for PHM.
