Tackling health inequalities by involving the community

Piedmont Regional Health Promotion Documentation Center (DoRS) has published a policy brief for policy makers and those working in the community on how to address health inequalities though community involvement. The first section looks at deepening the relationship between the individual and the community – how stronger social relations can contribute to social skills for health which support all and the most vulnerable in particular. The second looks at how interventions for community involvement, especially in the most disadvantaged communities, bring health and lifestyle benefits and the individual and community level. The final chapter includes suggestions and recommendations.
