'Fair Society Healthy Lives' (The Marmot Review)
- Fair Society Healthy Lives Executive Summary
- Fair Society Healthy Lives Framework of Indicators
- Fair Society Healthy Lives Full Report
In November 2008, Professor Sir Michael Marmot was asked by the then Secretary of State for Health to chair an independent review to propose the most effective evidence-based strategies for reducing health inequalities in England from 2010.
The final report, 'Fair Society Healthy Lives', was published in February 2010, and concluded that reducing health inequalities would require action on six policy objectives:
1. Give every child the best start in life
2. Enable all children, young people and adults to maximise their capabilities and have control over their lives
3. Create fair employment and good work for all
4. Ensure healthy standard of living for all
5. Create and develop healthy and sustainable places and communities
6. Strengthen the role and impact of ill-health prevention.
The executive summary and framework of indicators are available above. Some other documents are also available:
- Key Messages of 'Fair Society Healthy Lives'
To mark one year since the publication of 'Fair Society Healthy Lives', the Marmot Review Team and the London Health Observatory produced baseline figures for some key indicators of the social determinants of health, health outcomes and social inequality that correspond, as closely as is currently possible, to the indicators proposed in Fair Society, Healthy Lives. There is more information available here.
