Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.

Technical Summary

The long term aim of this research is to understand the causes of social inequalities in health by elucidating specific psychosocial, behavioural, and pathophysiological pathways by which social circumstances affect risk of disease. The Whitehall II study, uniquely, was set up with this aim and continues to be central to this endeavour. To replicate our findings, test a greater range of exposures, and disaggregate correlated exposures we propose collaborations with other cohort studies. Our objectives are to: (i) Determine the biological mechanisms by which psychosocial processes and health behaviours may affect coronary heart disease and diabetes risk by studying neuroendocrine, biochemical pathways and their relation to markers of early subclinical disease, to indicators of genetic susceptibility, and to clinical disease. (ii) Test and refine aetiological hypotheses in a broader range of populations; among partners of Whitehall II participants to distinguish between specific factors operating in the work place and those operating in the family and social environment; among general population samples of women, and ethnic minorities. (iii) Extend the perspective in two directions in the life course (a) in the Whitehall II cohort, by using the 7 phases of data covering social, psychosocial and biological factors, to determine the relative importance for health and functioning in an ageing population of factors operating during working life and current circumstances; (b) by examining how psychosocial factors interact with influences from early life to change risk of coronary heart disease and common mental disorder

Description 'Fair Society Healthy Lives' (The Marmot Review)
Geographic Reach Multiple continents/international 
Policy Influence Type Gave evidence to a government review
Impact In November 2008, Professor Sir Michael Marmot was asked by the then Secretary of State for Health to chair an independent review to propose the most effective evidence-based strategies for reducing health inequalities in England from 2010. The final report, 'Fair Society Healthy Lives', was published in February 2010, and concluded that reducing health inequalities would require action on six policy objectives: 1. Give every child the best start in life 2. Enable all children, young people and adults to maximise their capabilities and have control over their lives 3. Create fair employment and good work for all 4. Ensure healthy standard of living for all 5. Create and develop healthy and sustainable places and communities 6. Strengthen the role and impact of ill-health prevention. The executive summary and framework of indicators are available above. Some other documents are also available: - Key Messages of 'Fair Society Healthy Lives' - Task Group Reports - Presentations and the graphs from the full report - Summary of Views from the consultation - Background paper: a report of the qualitative findings from focus groups with deprived groups - Economic Costs: i. economic analysis ii. economic benefits of health inequality reduction iii. overall costs of health inequalities To mark one year since the publication of 'Fair Society Healthy Lives', the Marmot Review Team and the London Health Observatory produced baseline figures for some key indicators of the social determinants of health, health outcomes and social inequality that correspond, as closely as is currently possible, to the indicators proposed in Fair Society, Healthy Lives.

Description Addressing the social determinants of health: the urban dimension and the role of local government
Geographic Reach Multiple continents/international 
Policy Influence Type Gave evidence to a government review
Impact This report explores the priority issues, the evidence base and future policy direction needed to address the social determinants of health in the urban context, with particular reference to the role of local government. Chapter 2 sets out evidence on the social determinants of health and the built environment and Chapter 3 provides examples of local government activity across the social gradient from several countries in the WHO European Region. It provides the background to Healthy cities tackle the social determinants of inequities in health: a framework for action for the members of the Network of European Healthy Cities Networks and the members of the WHO European Healthy Cities Network, which are committed to delivering the overarching goal of Phase V (2009-2013) of health and health equity in all local policies. This report and the framework for action were formally presented in three seminars at the 2010 Annual Integrated Business and Technical Conference of the WHO European Healthy Cities Network and the Network of European Healthy Cities Networks in Sandnes, Norway in June 2010 as part of a wide consultation process. This report also links with and will feed into the European review of the social determinants of health and the health divide commissioned by the WHO Regional Office for Europe in 2010, which will produce a consultation report in June 2011 and a final report and recommendations in 2012.

Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Gave evidence to a government review
Impact The Institute of Health Equity was commissioned by 4Children to identify the most important outcomes Children's Centres should be striving for in order to give all children positive early-years experiences. The IHE have published both an executive summary (which includes the outcomes framework), and a full evidence review, which call for a renewed focus on supporting good parenting and the environment in which parents live and work. The work builds on existing frameworks and draws together the best available evidence of what is important in early years, the views of practitioners and parents, and the work that government continues to take forward around the early years. Moving on, the Institute will be involved in further work with Children's Centres to help ensure that the outcomes framework becomes a useful tool which also identifies how best to measures these outcomes. Both documents are available to download in pdf form above. The press release is available here. By Institute of Health Equity Jul 2012

Impact Three major reviews in recent years - Carol Black's review of the health of Britain's working age population, Working for a Healthier Tomorrow (2008), the Boorman Review of NHS Health & Well-being (2009) and Fair Society, Healthy Lives (2010) - have advocated a new approach to well-being through health strategies at work. The Marmot Review Team was commissioned by Barts and The London NHS Trust (BLT) to draw up a strategy for actions to improve the health and well-being of their workforce. The NHS is the largest employer in the country, so it is crucial that each Trust acts as a model employer and takes the lead in health promotion. This will only happen by first engaging staff and then engaging with the wider community. BLT is taking forward and leading the agenda as one of the first NHS Trusts to set out to implement the recent reviews' recommendations.

Impact Bevan Commission has as its mission to span public health and health care to improve health for the people of Wales. I was invited to give the keynote lecture to bring SDH into their deliberations. As with the NHSE meeting, above, the aim was to explore how to combine SDH with delivery of high quality care. The fact that I was invited to give the keynote lecture is a statement of their intent. The background of Swansea, of course, is as a post-industrial city, with Port Talbot steel works clinging on to a precarious existence. The challenge is innovation in that context with slender resources. We want to come out of this work with England and Wales with real models of how to have the NHS focus on SDH, alone and in partnership

Impact The Commission on Social Determinants of Health (CSDH) was established to support countries and global health partners to address the social factors leading to ill health and inequities. It drew the attention of society to the social determinants of health that are known to be among the worst causes of poor health and inequalities between and within countries. Overarching recommendations of the Commission: 1. Improve daily living conditions 2. Tackle the inequitable distribution of power, money, and resources 3. Measure and understand the problem and assess the impact of action Final report of the Commission The Final Report of the Commmission - 'closing the gap in a generation', was published in 2008. "This ends the debate decisively. Health care is an important determinant of health. Lifestyles are important determinants of health. But... it is factors in the social environment that determine access to health services and influence lifestyle choices in the first place."

Description EU Drivers report
Geographic Reach Europe 
Policy Influence Type Citation in clinical reviews
Impact Social gradients in health exist both between and within countries. This research proposal will build on the recommendations of the Commission on Social Determinants of Health (CSDH) and the Marmot Review of Health Inequalities, as well as on two European reviews commissioned by the EC and WHO Europe that are currently underway. It will focus on three of the key drivers to reduce health inequities: - early childhood development; - employment and the work environment; - income, welfare and social protection. The research will review evidence and the methods to assess the impact of policies and programmes in these three areas relating to health inequities, develop new methods and evidence, and provide policy recommendations and advocacy guidance. The three main objectives are: 1) identifying and filling key gaps in knowledge about policies driving these three social determinants, 2) analysing methods which have been applied to assess these effects, improving or developing new methods and applying and testing them in case studies across Europe. 3) assessing how the research findings are applicable to reallife situations and stakeholders, and providing advocacy guidance and policy recommendations to reduce health inequalities. The research will be undertaken by a consortium, co-ordinated by EuroHealthNet, and comprising UCL, Dusseldorf University and the Swedish Centre for Health Equity Studies in partnership with organisations representing the public health sector, civil society and business (EuroHealthNet, EAPN, Eurochild and BiTC).

Impact The project is funded by the EU. It aims to explore the relationship between work, worklessness and social protection as social determinants of health inequalities, with an assets based approach. In particular the project will: • Raise awareness of health inequalities with those working at EU, MS and regional level working on the growth and development, anti-discrimination, and social protection agendas and their role in relation to health inequalities. • Identify effective practice in work, worklessness and social protection to help to address health inequalities. These findings will be disseminated through networks by EuroHealthNet. • Draw together the knowledge base on what works to tackle health inequalities, in areas such as work and health, back to work schemes and minimising the harmful effects of worklessness. • Contribute to the development of health inequalities strategies across Europe, making a timely contribution to the WHO European review on social determinants of health. The project is led by the Scottish Executive, managed by Health Action Partnership International (HAPI) and includes a number of partners across the EU, including WHO Euro and the Institute. The project runs until the end of 2012. By Institute of Health Equity, Scottish Executive, HAPI Dec 2012
 
Description EU Review
Geographic Reach Europe 
Policy Influence Type Citation in clinical reviews
Impact This review was commissioned by the European Commission (EC), with the aim of producing a comprehensive report on health inequalities and the actions being taken to combat them in the EU. The report will: i. document and review the health inequalities situation in the EU including recent trends. ii. document and review the policy response to health inequalities at EU, national and, where relevant, sub-national levels. iii. provide an analysis and commentary including implications and suggestions for possible future actions. The background to this review is the communication from the European Commission "Solidarity in health: reducing health inequalities in the EU". This recognised that while EU citizens live, on average, longer and healthier lives than previous generations, the EU is faced with an important challenge: the large gaps in health which exist between and within EU Member States. It points out there are indications that such gaps may be growing and that increased unemployment and uncertainty arising from the current economic crisis is further aggravating this situation. The communication launched the debate needed to define potential EU-level measures to support actions by Member States and other actors to address this issue. The Consortium comprises UCL, the Health Action Partnership International (HAPI), EuroHealthNet and the Association of Public Health Observatories (North East and London Public Health Observatories). The Consortium is led by Professor Sir Michael Marmot. The final report will be submitted in May 2012. By Institute of Health Equity, HAPI, Eurohealthnet and APHO May 2012

Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact The main purpose was for me to engage in a public debate at Harvard with Angus Deaton, Nobel-prize winning economist from Princeton. Public health researchers, I included, judge that the causal arrow runs from social conditions to health. Economists, as a class, think it goes the other way - from health to income. Angus Deaton wrote a whole book, The Great Escape, based on the premise that there was no relation between social conditions and health. McKeown got it wrong. It was medicine and sanitation. We were now going to debate our perspectives in public. The learning objective was to marshall the evidence to convince a determined sceptic, and to convince the audience. In the event, Anne Case and Angus Deaton had published their paper on deaths of despair. Deaton had nearly, but not completely, come round to the view of social causation. But I learnt a great deal by marshalling the evidence and scrutinising his evidence over a day of discussions.

Impact The PAHO Commission on Equity and Health Inequalities in the Americas has occupied much of my time in the last two years. This was crunch time. We had to agree on our conclusions and recommendations. Getting this right would not only, we hoped, influence social policy in the Americas, future students would have as their learning objectives to study the report of our Commission. We had three days to finalise the last two years of work. I had completed three other Commission reports on social determinants and health equity - the WHO CSDH, the English Marmot Review, and the European Review - but there were special features of the Americas that would inform this Commission: colonialism (see Alice Springs), health of people of African descent and Indigenous peoples, bigger economic inequalities between and within countries, the importance of violence. What could we say on these issues? We got to the end of our three days and agreed on a set of recommendations. I presented the Executive Summary to the Governing Bodies of PAHO in September 2018, in DC. This one will run and run, I hope. The learning will be in how our report is taken up and acted upon. The PAHO Director publicly announced her intention to hold four launch meetings for our report in the Region, in order to promote uptake and action.

Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Gave evidence to a government review
Impact The Marmot Review Team prepared a paper for The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) on their Spatial Planning for Health Project - further information is available on the NICE website. The aim of the paper was to present further analysis of evidence on health and the built environment, sustainable development and spatial planning which was outlined in the Marmot Review and associated evidence papers. The objective of the paper was to provide information and material that helps identify the opportunities for further integrating health considerations within the spatial planning process and to highlight resources for practitioners (architects, urban designers, planners, public health practitioners, NHS bodies and local authorities) working to implement the guidance. The paper: * Provides evidence about the relationships between health and spatial design, and the socio-economic gradient in environmental disadvantage. * Outlines the Marmot Review policy recommendations for the built environment and the evidence and analysis behind these proposals. * Proposes good design principles for promoting both physical and mental health and well-being within communities. * Gives examples of best practice in addressing health inequalities through spatial planning and matrices to develop best practice interventions. * Includes a review of available resources and tools to assess the health and equity needs of an area and the impact of developments and regeneration projects on health equity (both pre- and post- implementation). The guidance has been discontinued by NICE but has been taken forward by others, for example: * The spatial planning and health group. * The Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) which has used the report to inform their recent publication 'Reuniting health with planning: healthier homes, healthier communities'. The Institute of Health Equity sat on the steering group for this project - further project information, the report, supplementary resources and a list of regional seminars is available from the TCPA web site * The report also continues to be disseminated via reactive requests for example at the Commonwealth Foundation and Greenspace Conference.

Description Non-Communicable Disease Monitoring
Geographic Reach Multiple continents/international 
Policy Influence Type Gave evidence to a government review
Impact The aim of this project for WHO is to identify targets and indicators, based on a social determinants of health measurement framework, to monitor progress on addressing the level and distribution of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in high, middle and low income countries across the world. The project will feed into the preparation of recommendations for a set of voluntary global targets for the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases. It was agreed at the UN Summit on the Prevention and Control of Non-communicable Diseases, in September 2011, that these recommendations will be prepared before the end of 2012. The work on a social determinants of health measurement framework will build on the frameworks for monitoring and target setting developed as part of the Strategic Review of Health in England post 2010, the Review of the Social Determinants of Health and the Health Divide in the WHO European Region and in preparing guidance on governance of the social determinants of health in the WHO European Region. A small number of specific targets will be proposed linked to the actions and interventions known to be effective in addressing overall levels of NCDs in these countries and in narrowing socio-economic gradients. They will be based on the processes and outputs that are necessary to achieve long term goals,as well as NCD-based outcomes themselves, to ensure that timeframes for expecting measurable changes in the indicators are realistic. This approach takes into account the need to take action right across the lifecourse and that, consequently, there will be a long lead times between some types of intervention (e.g.early years and education) and evidence of successful NCD outcomes in later life.

Impact As part of the 'Fair Society Healthy Lives' (Marmot Review) research, a number of expert Task Groups were set up to provide evidence and preliminary policy proposals in key areas of interest for the Review. The Priority Public Health Conditions Task Group consisted of Alan Maryon-Davis (Chair), Clare Bambra, Mark Bellis, Sara Hughes, Angela Greatley, Sally Greengross, Kerry Joyce, Paul Lincoln, Tim Lobstein, Chris Naylor, Rebecca Salay and Martin Wiseman. Their work focused on inequalities in a limited number of key 'public health conditions': the big causes of premature death (cardiovascular disease and cancer); obesity; and other big public health burdens such as risktaking behaviours in younger adults (alcohol, drugs, violence), mental illhealth throughout life, and the threats to wellbeing in older people.

Impact PHAC organise a two day meeting for us. "Us" being me as chair of the PAHO Commission and my colleagues Jessica Allen and Peter Goldblatt. One day was on Canadian experience on early child development. The second was on ageing. In addition, I had a meeting with leaders of Canadian First Nations. The Canadians have been leaders on early childhood development. We wanted to learn from their experience with a particular focus on indigenous people. Canadian experience with age-friendly cities. Both in terms of measurement and specific actions, the Canadian experience on ECD is encouraging. The First Nations perspective is that the history of colonialism in Canada explains much about the perspective. Research on age-friendly cities is ongoing. Interesting discussions about research but few conclusions so far. To understand how the history of colonialism in the Americas shapes the present health inequalities. More challenging, is what to do about it.

Impact I was lecturing on social determinants of health and seeking to engage the interest of these psychiatrists. Childhood and adolescence are key stages both because of mental illness at these ages and because they set the stage for future mental and physical health in adulthood. These psychiatrists take a social perspective, relating children's needs to family and social background. A particular need is to assess effective interventions to reduce the social gradient in adverse child experiences

It is envisaged that the approach and the tools developed would aid Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWBs), their partners and service providers to identify, develop and enable the commissioning of health interventions which address the SDH and health inequalities. A stakeholders' workshop was run on Tuesday 6th March 2012 with around 40 delegates from local authorities, health authorities, central government, and the public health training scheme. A summary of the workshop is available below. Summary of IHE workshop The online consultation was run from Friday 27th April to Friday 25th May and received 26 responses from local authorities, health authorities, academics and charities.

Description The Health Impacts of Cold Homes and Fuel Poverty
Geographic Reach National 
Policy Influence Type Gave evidence to a government review
Impact The Marmot Review Team was commissioned by Friends of the Earth to write this report which reviews the existing evidence of the direct and indirect health impacts suffered by those living in fuel poverty and cold housing. It makes the case for aligning the environmental and health benefits of reducing fuel poverty and improving the thermal efficiency of the existing housing stock. The report is available to download from this page (see above). There are also some other documents which might be of interest: Michael Marmot's blog about the report. Jessica Allen's blog about fuel poverty, which is based on an article in Public Health Today. Our recent joint submission to the London Assembly on alleviating fuel poverty. On March 2011 the SoS for Energy and Climate Change announced that Prof. Hills had been requested to understake a review of the current fuel poverty target and definition. The Institute of Health Equity has submitted a response to the interim report. Fuel poverty is a long-standing health issue: the impact of cold housing on health and the stresses brought on by living in fuel poverty have been recognised for decades by researchers, medical professionals and policy makers alike. At the same time, it is an issue that often gets dismissed as the 'tough nature of things' because our housing stock is old and cold housing is so widespread that many have come to regard it as a normal state of affairs. It should not be so. Cold housing and fuel poverty can be successfully tackled through policies and interventions if there is a will to do so. There is a social gradient in fuel poverty: the lower your income the more likely you are to be at risk of fuel poverty. Inequalities that are avoidable are fundamentally unfair - fuel poverty is avoidable and it contributes to social and health inequalities. By Institute of Health Equity May 2011

A report containing a literature review of the potential impacts of the changes along with a set of recommendations of what local authorities and other actors can do to mitigate any negative impacts was published on 19 June 2012. A set of indicators for local authorities to use to measure the impacts of the changes in their area is currently in development and will undergo local testing before being published early in 2013. The press release is available here. There is also a set of presentation slides about the report available on this page. By Institute of Health Equity Jun 2012

Impact My book the Health Gap has been translated into Italian, La Salute Diseguale. To my surprise, La Salute Diseguale, was the theme chosen for this year's (annual) Trento Festival of Economics. Economists have generally assumed that the causal arrow runs from health to wealth not the other way round, as public health people assume and demonstrate. What would economists make of my theme. We do need to get economists to take seriously the 'wealth leads to health' pathway and use their analytical methods to help with causal analyses.

Description Visit to Alice Springs NT Australia 3-5 May

Policy Influence Type Influenced training of practitioners or researchers
Impact In the course of our PAHO Commission on Equity and Health Inequalities in the Americas, it was put to me by representatives of Canada's Indigenous community that my model of social determinants of health needed to be added to if one were to understand the health disadvantage of Indigenous people: in particular the legacy of colonialism, and the importance of attachment to the land. The visit to Alice was to see what a community oriented health organisation could do. What I saw was the legacy of entrenched disadvantage, but a multi-faceted health care organisation trying to address the problems: early child development centres, a men's health centre aimed at getting young men off the streets and off drugs and alcohol, a public health approach to alcohol, outreach to the community. Conventional wisdom in Australia and, to a lesser extent, in Canada is that nothing works to close the health gap. The big question is whether community controlled organisations are a step to community empowerment that will make a difference.

Impact The WHO Regional Director for Europe has commissioned a review of social determinants of health and the health divide in the European Region. There are major health inequalities within and between countries in the WHO European Region. The purpose of the review is to identify the relevance of the findings of the WHO Commission on the Social Determinants of Health (CSDH), the Strategic Review of Health Inequalities in England post 2010 (Marmot Review), and other new evidence to the European context and translate these into policy proposals. The review will inform the new policy for health for the European Region, Health 2020, as will a companion study on governance for health in the 21st century. It will accelerate action on socially determined health inequities by developing policies that work in low-, middle- and high-income countries. It is drawing on best practices, examples and experience of addressing social determinants of health and health inequities in the Region. One of the key goals of the review is to identify what can be implemented with sufficient scale and intensity to make a difference across the diverse contexts of the European Region. The Review is chaired by Professor Sir Michael Marmot, supported by senior advisors, task groups and secretariats at UCL and WHO. The executive summary of the Review is now available on the WHO website. The Lancet have also published an article based on the executive summary. More information is available on our articles page.

Impact Leaders from government, WHO, civil society, and industry gathered to share knowledge on control of NCD. As usual, I was the sole voice calling for SDH. At least I was in the opening expert plenary. To tap into the wisdom and experience of the world's leaders on NCD control. Andto see how I could get them to take seriously, SDH. A great deal of politics, including the decision of the new WHO D-G, Dr Tedros, to appoint Robert Mugabe as ambassador on NCD for Africa. There was such an outcry that Tedros reversed that decision. The proceedings reinforced my view that NCD control needs SDH. Equally, there is much to see about specific methods of control of major risk factors.

PI Contribution EuroHealthNet is a not for profit network of organisations, agencies and statutory bodies working to promote health and equity by addressing the factors that determine health directly or indirectly. They support their members' work in EU and associated states through policy and project development, networking and communications. They offer advice and information for policy makers, promote good practices and innovations, and seek to practice ethical and sustainable methods to achieve the aims and objectives set by our members and partners.
Collaborator Contribution EuroHealthNet monitors calls for projects and tenders, and develops proposals for projects and tenders in order to develop knowledge and evidence. EuroHealthNet's role in these projects and tenders can range from leading the process of submitting joint proposals to participating in proposals developed by others, to coordination and management of all or some key components of strategic projects. Funding for projects comes mostly from the European Commission, in particular DG SANCO and DG RESEARCH's Health programme, but EuroHealthNet also takes on projects funded by other DG's and other institutions, and we are occasionally contracted to carry out research for members. Most of the current projects focus on how (health) policies can contribute to reducing health inequalities and inequalities in the (social) determinants of health, and on promoting health in all policies. In addition, EuroHealthNet participates in projects on health promotion dealing with the issues of the changing society, such as healthy ageing and sustainability.

Description European Commision Review of Health Inequalites 
Organisation European Commission
Country European Union (EU) 
Sector Public 
PI Contribution This review was commissioned by the European Commission (EC), with the aim of producing a comprehensive report on health inequalities and the actions being taken to combat them in the EU. The report will: i. document and review the health inequalities situation in the EU including recent trends. ii. document and review the policy response to health inequalities at EU, national and, where relevant, sub-national levels. iii. provide an analysis and commentary including implications and suggestions for possible future actions. The background to this review is the communication from the European Commission "Solidarity in health: reducing health inequalities in the EU". This recognised that while EU citizens live, on average, longer and healthier lives than previous generations, the EU is faced with an important challenge: the large gaps in health which exist between and within EU Member States. It points out there are indications that such gaps may be growing and that increased unemployment and uncertainty arising from the current economic crisis is further aggravating this situation. The communication launched the debate needed to define potential EU-level measures to support actions by Member States and other actors to address this issue. The Consortium comprises UCL, the Health Action Partnership International (HAPI), EuroHealthNet and the Association of Public Health Observatories (North East and London Public Health Observatories). The Consortium is led by Professor Sir Michael Marmot. The final report will be submitted in May 2012.

Results and Impact This Tube map, 'Lives on the Line', shows the variation in life expectancy in local areas across London.
The article includes a quote from Professor Sir Michael Marmot,who said the map "captures how stark the health equalities are in a very small geographical area".
"If you want to see a difference in life expectancy between countries of 11 years, you can fly from London to Guatemala," he said.
"But if you are worried about your carbon footprint, you could just catch the Tube east.
"The difference between Hackney and the West End is the same as the difference between England and Guatemala in terms of life expectancy."
Sir Michael said life expectancy was affected by "early child development, education, employment and working conditions, having the minimum income to live a healthy life, the environment and the issues of smoking, obesity, drinking and diet".

24th September 2012
In Britain, the health gap is growing - in the wealthiest parts of the country, people are living on average more than a decade longer than in the poorest parts.
An academic discipline which tries to work out why this health gap exists has also grown.
It's called social epidemiology. You've probably never heard of it, but the science has influenced governments of both the left and right. So what answers has it thrown up?
The most famous comes from the Whitehall II study of civil servants, led by Sir Michael Marmot, which found that people who are in high-pressure jobs, over which they have low control, are at greater risk of heart disease, because of the stress their lowly position causes.
The idea that how much control you have over your work and life affects your health has generated talk in policy-making circles about the need to empower people.
But the evidence is contested. When economists look at the same data, they see something different.
David Aaronovitch hears the arguments.

Results and Impact Coincided with release of "Political origins of health inequity" report by the Lancet-University of Oslo Commission on Global Governance for Health-an analysis of how policies and factors external to the health sector impact on health inequity, with appropriate recommendations (Professor Marmot was a member of this Commission)

The report focuses on the "political nature of global health," reaffirming many of the points established by Michael Marmot, a member of this commission, in his social determinants of health approach. The key claim is that globalisation has promoted growth, but exacerbated inequality. The report talks of "an unjust global economic system that favours a very small elite with great wealth at the price of environmental and social degradation that negatively affects health equity." To the extent that-until Davos at least-inequality was a dirty word at a supranational level, this report helps to make it part of mainstream discourse.

The coverage that followed last year's media briefing was the equivalent advertising cost of £2,063,280. It was the BBC Radio 4 News headline the following morning, 18 July, and on the front page of The Times, Telegraph and was covered in every national and local newspaper, the Huffington Post and all broadcast outlets. This media impact reflects the value of Professor Sir Michael Marmot's research to population health. The top line from last year's briefing - stalling life expectancy - continued to create media interest throughout the summer. Sir Michael's letter to the health secretary calling for urgent research into why life expectancy seems no longer to be rising
was deemed so crucial to population health that The Times covered it on its front page.

The story was based on data from a 2009 national dental health survey of adults over the age of 21 in England. It found strong links between socioeconomic status and oral health.
The study was carried out by researchers based at the University of Newcastle and the University of London, and was funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council as part of the Secondary Data Analysis Initiative. It was published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Dental Research.
