"Understanding Health Inequalities" turns the spotlight on a question at the heart of health and welfare policy. Why is there a social class gradient in health? How do socio-economic inequalities in life chances and living conditions take their toll on health? The book tackles the questions of why and how by drawing on UK research funded under the ESRC's Health Variations Programme. Written with the student and practitioner in mind, "Understanding Health Inequalities" is designed to make cutting-edge research on health inequalities accessible to both the academic and policy communities.
