Assessing public health approaches to level-up the gradient in health inequalities: the Gradient Evaluation Framework

John Davies, Nigel Sherriff

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper seeks to introduce and analyse the development of the Gradient Evaluation Framework (GEF) to facilitate evaluation of policy actions for their current or future use in terms of their ‘gradient friendliness’. In particular, this means their potential to level-up the gradient in health inequalities by addressing the social determinants of health and thereby reducing decision-makers' chances of error when developing such policy actions.
