Abstract
Health inequalities are complex and challenging. In 2008 a commissioned review recommended that reducing health inequalities would require action and specific policy objectives, since then health and health inequality has generally worsened. This lack of equality matters, as some of the people most at risk of experiencing health inequalities are also often those who find it the hardest to access high-quality support. Tacking these inequalities is of paramount importance for public health.
