Infographic: Meet the four partner organisations Health inequalities in Scotland: An independent review
This infographic was developed to explain the different components of our review on health inequalities in Scotland.
People born in the most deprived areas of Scotland can expect to live about 24 fewer years in good health than people born in the least deprived areas.
Our independent review aims to provide a thorough analysis of the wider factors that influence persistent health inequalities and plot a path for future action. We’re working with an expert advisory group on issues specific to Scotland, and partner organisations on four research projects:
- Trends in social inequalities in health and health related behaviours over the last two decades
Public health trends
MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow
- Trends in key socio-economic determinants of health and inequalities
Wider determinants of health
Fraser of Allander Institute
- Public understanding of wider determinants of health and health inequalities
- Exploring the key priorities to improve health inequalities, what are the opportunities for and barriers to action
