'For politicians with a genuine desire to reduce health inequalities, this book provides guidance as to what is likely to work and what is not. I recommend that these politicians, and anyone else with an interest in inequalities, read this book.' - John Macleod, Family Practice
Interestingly, the authors propose a kind of Cochrane Collaboration for inequality interventions and policies, to further the international study of inequalities. This would undoubtedly be useful but for me the books message is that we must pursue the holy grail of cross-party consensus on the main strands of policy, as in the Netherlands and Sweden.
