Abstract: This report provides practical guidance for taking action to address health inequalities at the local level. It offers helpful explanations of key concepts and offers examples of how to go about making a case and deciding which interventions to use to tackle more effectively the social determinants of health and increase commitment to addressing the causes of inequalities. The framework for action supports whole-of-government and whole-ofsociety approaches. The main evidence underpinning this publication can be found in the complementary report: Addressing the social determinants of health: the urban dimension and the role of local government.
