Inequalities in health future challenges for intersectoral cooperation

Intersectoral cooperation is key to identifying and reducing health inequalities, which are result of complex problems at the global and national level. In order to achieve our common goal, to identify, reduce and prevent inequalities, we must bring all stakeholders together and encourage their cooperation. This will enable us to design adequate (indeed the most optimal) proposals for decision makers for developing health policies that improve health and reduce health inequalities. The Slovenian Development Strategy 2030 points out health as one of the main focuses of the strategy. Reducing health inequalities is one of the key contemporary challenges to creating the conditions for a high quality of life. The aim is to improve the population’s health in all regions, particularly among the elderly, the socially deprived and the less educated.
