Presentation

This IUHPE Research Report Series funded by the Department of Health of England and sponsored by the IUHPE.
The aim of this project was to identify indicators of living conditions and social position amongst women of child‐bearing age in very poor ruralities. Field visits were undertaken in rural communities in India, Haiti and Ghana, where expert Reference Groups were consulted, key informant interviews were conducted, focus group discussions were held, and observations were made. 
The report makes suggestions for aspects of living conditions and determinants of social position that might be measured in survey research and in surveillance systems so that the social determinants of health (SDH) relevant in very poor ruralities can be monitored and used in public health work. 
This study is exploratory, meant as a stepping stone to further work in research programme Social Determinants of Health in Very Poor Ruralities.

 

Réduire les Inégalités sociales de Santé en France (Reducing social inequalities in health)

Author

Year

2010

Presentation

The IUHPE has collaborated towards the development of a publication of the French Institute for Prevention and Health Education (Inpes.) This publication, which was drafted with the contribution of around 50 renowned experts, is a guide for action collecting national and international experiences aimed at reducing social inequalities in health. Its objective is to provide readers with scientifically valid knowledge and evaluated best practices which project managers can draw from.
The publication is part of a larger project aimed at the development of health promotion strategies to reduce social inequalities in health in France. The first step of this initiative consisted in the organization of an international session dedicated to this topic at the French Annual Conference on Prevention in 2008.
The results of this research will be widely disseminated at the 4th International Symposium of Local and Regional Health Programs (PLRS - Ottawa, 27-30 June 2011) and at the French Annual Conference on Prevention organized by Inpes (Journées de la Prevention - Paris 19-20 May 2011).
