Languages: English
Types: Book
This first briefing paper is an account of why health inequality matters and why health inequalities deserve consideration across all areas of CLAHRC (SY) activity. We begin by briefly reviewing the policy landscape and the prominence of 'inequality' as a growing focus of concern over the past 30 years. We then set out the type of philosophical and political considerations that may underpin the view that health inequality is a problem. Next we identify the main axes of inequality with which we suggest CLAHRC (SY) should concern itself. In the next section of the paper we set out the extent of health inequality in South Yorkshire, as far as available data allow. Finally, we show the relevance of health inequality across the CLAHRC (SY) themes and raise for discussion the implications for CLAHRC (SY) activity.
