The overall aim of the Marmot Review is to propose an evidence-based strategy for reducing the health inequalities in England from 2010, including policies and interventions that address the social determinants of health inequalities.
Task Group 8’s work focuses on inequalities in a limited number of key public health conditions’: the big causes of premature death (cardiovasculardisease 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. Task Group 8 reviewed new and emerging evidence on the effects of particular policies, strategies, structures and interventions on reducing inequalities in these conditions, with a particular focus on the social determinants. On the basis of the evidence the group collated and interpreted, they made a total of 15 proposals on what they consider to be plausible policy directions and changes in practice.
