Society, health and healthcare have developed enormously in recent decades. However, the health and wellbeing enjoyed by some is not enjoyed by all, or even a majority of the population. Inequalities are a key challenge for our society and there is evidence that the bigger the gap between the most and least deprived, the worse the health of the population as a whole. Inequalities are therefore everyone’s concern.
