Health Inequalities in the 21st Century

The Institute of Fiscal Studies have just launched the Deaton Review which examines Health Inequalities within the UK in the 21st Century. The report can be found here.

The IFS define what they mean by the term Inequality, how that Inequality has changed over time and the affect that health has on families and gender.

In conclusion they note that Inequality is the most pressing topic of the day not only within the UK but across the Globe: Their belief is that more work and more analysis should be undertaken of the nature of the various divides which exist, and which Inequalities matter most.
