Katherine Smith, Sarah Hill, Clare Bambra

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The final chapter reflects on the difficulties that appear to face researchers and others working to better understand and reduce health inequalities. After highlighting the major challenges that are put forward in the various contributions to this edited collection, this chapter goes on to consider some of the opportunities suggested throughout the book as to how best health inequalities research might now move forward. Although these recommendations are largely targeted at health inequalities researchers, the chapter also considers the potential contributions of advocates, campaigners, policymakers, and practitioners. The overall aim of this concluding chapter is to sum up what appear to be the most promising areas of future health inequalities research.
