Building a healthier future for all by addressing the determinants of health and reducing inequalities
EuroHealthNet is a not-for-profit partnership of organisations, agencies and statutory bodies working on public health, disease prevention, promoting health, and reducing inequalities. Several research centres are also part of our partnership.
We work on public health and social equity policy, practice, and research. We also explore and strengthen the links between them. Our approach focuses on health in all policies, reducing health inequalities gaps and gradients, working on determinants across the life course, and sustainability.
In the past decade, health promoting services have worsened due to budget cuts as part of implementation of austerity measures. Now, during the recovery phase of the pandemic, more than ever, we see the need to re-build strong health and social services to address widening gaps in health inequalities and develop resilience of communities. The scale of investment needed is huge and we should not shy away from new financing instruments and partnerships. This e-guide is a first step, providing a source of inspiration how this can be done. We are only in first exploratory phases and hope to further improve the guide. Please contact us with additional learning, tools, good practices or other resources. We would appreciate receiving them. Thank you.
