What is the health equity resource database?


The resource database includes examples of work on health inequalities including

  • publications
  • good practices
  • initiatives and organisations
  • data sources
  • policies and policy analysis
  • research

The database is focused on Europe and European countries.

You can filter results by type (for example: health inequalities research, organisation, intervention/practice, or policy) and theme (for example: built environment, education, or employment). You can also filter by country, or find cross-border collaborations. The level filter allows you to find local, national, European or international entries. Use the search bar to search for keywords.
