Inequalities in health future challenges for intersectoral cooperation (summary)

By adapting social subsystems and ensuring access to high-quality, timely healthcare and long-term care services, raising the awareness of and educating the population regarding the importance of lifestyle, and reducing risks to human health, we will also reduce the incidence of health inequalities. We must therefore realise, at the social as well as individual level, that health is not simply a value and an asset, but a right that should be available to everyone regardless of their socioeconomic status.
