- The EURO-HEALTHY project (Shaping EUROpean policies to promote
HEALTH equitY) is a three-year Horizon 2020 research project launched in
January 2015 aiming to advance knowledge of policies that have the highest
potential to enhance health and health equity across European regions with
particular focus on urban areas.
Within the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, the call
“Foresight for health policy development and regulation” underpinned the
need for more meaningful information, particularly on the regional health inequalities
within the EU. Consequently, EURO-HEALTHY developed a comprehensive
and structured framework of analysis, integrating and quantifying
key factors impacting population health and health inequalities, taking the
EU’s diversity into account and foreseeing the impact of policies. Following a
socio-technical approach, the sound methods were built through highly participatory
processes involving a large group of multidisciplinary experts and
key stakeholders at different geographical levels. The methods were applied
to analyse health and identify geographical health inequalities in 269 NUTS
2 regions, ten selected metropolitan areas and two city case studies.
In this publication, we present some of the main findings, conclusions and
recommendations of the EURO-HEALTHY project. The booklet consists of:
I) Profiles of each Work Package summarizing their work and II) Fact sheets
that present an overview of evidence on thematic areas going from the relationship
between health status and a wide range of determinants, to specific
methodological aspects including the evaluation of health and of policies
with potential to promote health and health equity.
Our desire is that the evidence shared in this informative booklet would be a
starting point for policymakers and concerned stakeholders to enhance their
understanding on what are the drivers of health inequalities in Europe and,
thus be a trigger to an extended dialogue on what are the policies having the
highest benefit in promoting more equitable and healthy environments at different
levels (European, regional and local).
