Terveyserojen kaventaminen Euroopan unionissa -esite tarjoaa ajantasaista tietoa Euroopan unionin jäsenvaltioiden sisäisistä ja niiden välisistä terveyseroista.
Siinä tarkastellaan useita terveyseroihin liittyviä kysymyksiä (etenkin elinajanodotetta) ja terveyteen vaikuttavia tekijöitä. Huomiota kiinnitetään erityisesti ns. sosiaaliseen gradienttiin eli lähes kaikissa terveyteen vaikuttavissa tekijöissä olevaan sosiaaliseen ulottuvuuteen.
Erityisesti paneudutaan siihen, miten EU ja jäsenvaltiot voivat politiikoillaan vaikuttaa terveyserojen kaventumiseen ja minkälaisia rahoitusmahdollisuuksia ne tarjoavat.
Lopuksi esitellään kolme esimerkkiä hankkeista, joissa on onnistuttu parantamaan lasten, työnhakijoiden tai etnisen vähemmistön terveydentilaa. Tämä julkaisu on saatavilla painettuna EU:n kaikilla virallisilla kielillä.
