Hong Kong Reports

The UCL Institute of Health Equity and the Chinese University of Hong Kong Institute of Health Equity have produced a series of reports to review health equity and the social determinants of health in Hong Kong.

The first report (Build Back Fairer: Reducing Socioeconomic Inequalities in Health in Hong Kong) offers and overview of inequalities in health and the social determinants in Hong Kong, a place with one of the highest life expectancies in the world. It also discusses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The second report of the series (Health Inequalities in Hong Kong: A Life Course Approach) examines inequalities in the drivers of health throughout the course of life, from maternity and the early years to school age and working age, and finally into old age.

The third report (The Environment and Health Inequalities in Hong Kong) focuses on the effects of the main environmental determinants of health in Hong Kong, including housing, outdoor air pollution and climate change.
