Abstract:
Socio-economic inequalities in health are a major challenge for health policy, not only because most of these inequalities can be considered unfair, but also because reducing the burden of health problems in disadvantaged groups offers a great potential for improving the average health status of the population as a whole. However, it seems that public health professionals are not enough aware of inequalities in health or they are not trained enough to handle them. It can be partially explained by the fact, that there is neither postgraduate education nor training in the field of socioeconomic inequalities for public health personnel. This module consists of four workshops, one workshop for every learning objective (workshop 1 - Assessment process of the availability of data, Workshop 2 - Existing data resources, Workshop 3 - Methodological guidelines, Workshop 4 - Formulating a public health policy.
