European Journal of Public Health supplement on health inequalities in Europe

The supplement which contains 16 papers forms part of the HiNEWS project (health inequalities in European welfare states) which is funded by Norface and life science and technology led by Prof Clare Bambra of the Institute of Health and Society, Newcastle University.

Together with colleagues from the Norwegian University of science and technology (Trondheim), the University of Siegen, University of York and Harvard University, this projects examines patterns of health inequalities in Europe and what can be done to reduce them. We designed the rotating module of the European Social Survey and have performed the first analysis of the data-presented in this supplement.

Our supplement and analysis of the European Social Survey were presented to DG Sanco in the EU commission in February and will also be presented to various public health organisations from across the European Union at the annual general meeting of Eurohealthnet in Finland in May.

The supplement is available here:
