An Economic Framework for Analysing the Social Determinants of Health and Health Inequalities – October 2009
CHE Research Paper 52 – University of York – Centre for Health Economics

“Summary

Reducing health inequalities is an important part of health policy in most countries. This paper discusses from an economic perspective how government policy can influence health inequalities, particularly focusing on the outcome of performance targets in England, and the role of sectors of the economy outside the health service – the ‘social determinants’ of health – in delivering these targets.”

This paper is the outcome of work commissioned by the Department of Health and the Review of Health Inequalities in England.
