This book establishes what works in health inequalities policy, how and why. It provides evidence of key targets for intervention through a detailed exploration of lifetime pathways and processes that are found to give rise to health inequalities. Authoritative yet accessible, the book provides a comprehensive account of theory, policy and practice. It: adopts a lifecourse framework; explores the links between biological, psychological, social, educational and economic factors and a range of health outcomes; describes key policy initiatives, assesses research evidence of 'what works' and examines the limitations of the existing evidence base; highlights key areas of debate. Health inequalities through the lifecourse is essential reading for academics and students in medical sociology, social psychology, social policy and public health, and for policy makers and practitioners working in public health and social exclusion.
