Health Inequality (DRIVERS Project)

Determinants to Reduce health Inequity Via Early childhood, Realising fair employment, and Social protection - DRIVERS EU-Project (2012-2015)

The research team directed by the Senior Professorship has worked on updating knowledge on links between working conditions, social inequalities and unequal health across Europe. Several systematic reviews and meta-analyses as well as secondary data analyses of cross-country European studies on working conditions and health were performed (publications see below). In addition, two case studies were performed and a policy document with recommendations derived from obtained new research evidence was developed.
