Abstract

Poorer people are more likely to have a poorer health. Socioeconomic inequality in health extends worldwide and remains persistent in Europe despite increases in wealth, educational attainment, proportions of working in non-manual jobs, and expenditure on health services. All age groups are affected. We reviewed the evidence on health inequalities in Europe, focusing on older people, a group which is growing fast and is vulnerable to adverse socioeconomic circumstances.
