Rapid review of inequalities in health and wellbeing in Norway since 2014Read Executive Summary Read the Full Report
This report of a rapid review of inequalities in health and wellbeing in Norway since 2014 was commissioned by the Norwegian Directorate of Health to inform the development of a National Strategy to Reduce Social Inequalities in Health. It is a joint collaboration between UCL Institute of Health Equity (IHE) and WellFare: Nordic Research Centre for Wellbeing and Social Sustainability, Department of Education and Lifelong Learning at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Norway is a country characterised by a high and increasing standard of living for much of the population, but with some significant and growing social and economic inequalities. Despite a long tradition of reducing these inequalities by introducing welfare policies and structural measures, inequalities in health and the social determinants of health persist and are widening for some groups.
