This area of work examines inequalities in life expectancy and in healthy life expectancy and how social policies and interventions can promote health equity. We evaluate the impact of social determinants based interventions including welfare rights advice, social prescribing, food security, housing, community control, or unequal health care access, as well as the wider social epidemiology of health inequalities at the national and global level, such as the Health Inequalities in European Welfare States (HiNEWS) project.
