'Local Action on Health Inequalities' - A Series of Reports published by The Institute of Health Equity

A number of evidence review and briefings about practical, local actions to reduce health inequalities through action on the social determinants of health commissioned by Public Health England and written and produced by the UCL Institute of Health Equity have been launched.

The topics covered relate to some of the policy objectives in the Marmot Review and are intended to provide a useful local focus for action.

The papers include evidence, practical points and case studies on approaches and actions that can be taken by local authorities on a range of issues to reduce health inequalities.

The reports cover the following topic areas:

1. Good quality parenting programmes and the home to school transition.

2. Building children and young people's resilience in schools.

3. Reducing the number of young people not in employment, education or training (NEET).

4. Adult learning services.

5. Increasing employment opportunities and improving workplace health.

6. Health inequalities and the living wage.

7. Fuel poverty and cold home-related health problems.

8. Improving access to green spaces.

9. Understanding the economics of investments in the social determinants of health.

10. Tackling health inequalities through action on the social determinants of health: lessons from experience.

There is also an overview document available, which introduces the documents, and a video of Michael Marmot introducing the work.
