Socio-economic inequalities in mortality: evidence and policies in Europe (INEQ-CITIES)

As the first regional study on health inequality across and within the cities of Europe, INEQ-CITIES advances the understanding of how social inequalities in health exist amidst different social and political contexts.  Moreover, comparative analysis of urban health policies and interventions to tackle inequalities in health will be useful to inform recommendations for the future.  As such, INEQ-CITIES has identified and examined the health inequalities in Europe alongside the social and health policies undertaken in each city in order to make recommendations to monitor and to tackle inequalities in mortality in Europe. All-Cause Mortality Maps and Disease-Specific Mortality Maps of Budapest have been prepared within the project.
