NHS England and Public Health England have developed these pages to make it easier for organisations and the public to find information, resources and action being taken to reduce health inequalities in England.

Health inequalities are the preventable, unfair and unjust differences in health status between groups, populations or individuals. All the evidence shows that the NHS is one of the fairest health systems in the world, but it is not much-maligned Health and Social Care Act introduced a new duty on the Secretary of State, NHS England and clinical commissioning groups to ‘have regard to the need to reduce inequalities’ in access to care and outcomes of care.

The distribution of health is determined by a wide variety of individual, community, and national factors (See Figure 1). There is a growing body of evidence documenting inequalities in both the distribution of health (i.e.
