This report presents the Norwegian experience in implementing strategies to reduce socially determined health inequity and highlights the key lessons learned from this process.
The report describes the introduction of a comprehensive intersectoral policy to tackle the social gradient in health and provides a tool to review progress to date and options for the future. Other countries can use and adapt the critical areas of learning to advance their own national policies, strategies and capacity to reduce socially determined health inequity.
