Health equity strategies

Health Equity Strategies

The proposals put forward in various large scale reviews, such as the Marmot Review and the Commission on Social Determinants of Health, require interpretation for different contexts. Local area strategies or plans that focus on a particular social determinant have the potential to translate broad recommendations into detailed programmes that are relevant and appropriate to the particular area or environment in which they will operate.

These strategies often show most promise when they seek to bring together a variety of stakeholders, agencies and sectors to work collaboratively, building on each other's strengths and areas of expertise. This type of holistic working can help navigate a 'road map' of future plans and actions to reduce inequalities in health.

Below you can find some examples of strategies written or adopted by various bodies.
