A group of experts gathered in Liverpool to discuss methods for evaluating the impact of universal policies on the social determinants of health and the reduction of health inequalities in Europe.

Hosted by the Department of Health Inequalities and the Social Determinants of Health, in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), the meeting was chaired by Professor Margaret Whitehead and brought together professionals from Europe, Canada and the UK.

A programme of work from this group will feed into the development of the WHO ‘Health 2010’ Strategy for Europe and collaborative research projects on evaluating natural policy experiments.
