Long-term monitoring of health inequalities Scotland

A Ministerial Task Force on Health Inequalities led by the Minister for Public Health Scotland was established in 2007 to identify and prioritise practical actions to reduce the most significant and widening nationwide health inequalities. This report series monitors a range of health indicators over time. The 2022 report presents a range of indicators selected in order to monitor health inequalities over time. With the exception of the healthy birthweight indicator, significant health inequalities persist for each indicator covered in the report.
