Tenth Futures Forum on steering towards equity in health



The report has seven sections. Section 1 offers an introduction on the importance of steering towards equity in health. Following this introduction, Chapter 2 presents expectations from the Forum participants. Chapter 3 addresses the concepts of inequities in health, as well as the challenges and opportunities, and takes a look at national experiences from three European countries. The next three chapters (4–6) are structured according to the three stewardship functions and give examples of the practical experiences of a number of countries in developing strategies, policies and actions to tackle inequities in health; and attempt to provide answers to questions such as how health equity policies are developed, implemented and evaluated, and whether they have succeeded in closing the health gap. Chapter 7 sums up the Forum with its conclusions and recommendations.
