Welcome to the Companion Website for What works in reducing inequalities in child health? by Helen Roberts
"This superbly crafted book is essential reading for all those wishing to right some serious wrongs in our society. Roberts puts the evidence and the power in our hands." Penny Hawe, Population Health Intervention Research Centre, University of Calgary, Canada
The UK has a deservedly strong reputation for work on understanding social inequalities in health, but there is some way to go in using research and other types of knowledge to reduce inequalities in child health. This revised and updated edition of an important report considers 'what works' - or might work - in practice.
There is new research, new case studies, updated research references, and discussion of cost effectiveness - all relevant for doing the right thing in a climate of austerity. Drawing on evidence from the UK and beyond, the book presents these in an accessible form, not just for those who make decisions now, but also for the students of today who are the decision makers of tomorrow.
