about this item

New public health governance arrangements under the Coalition government have wide reaching implications for the delivery of health inequality interventions.

Through the framework of understanding health inequalities as a ‘wicked problem’ the book develops an applied approach to researching, understanding and addressing these by drawing on complexity theory. Case studies illuminate the text, illustrating and discussing the issues in real life terms and enabling public health, health promotion and health policy students at postgraduate level to fully understand and address the complexities of health inequalities.

Part of the Evidence for Public Health Practice series, the book is a valuable resource on current UK public health practice for academics, researchers and public health practitioners.
