Acción Estratégica Medea

The INEQ-CITIES project aims to study socio-economic inequalities in mortality in the census tracts of 15 European cities at the beginning of the 21st century, and to identify social and health policies implemented in those cities to reduce inequalities in health, in order to make recommendations for monitoring and to propose interventions to combat inequalities in urban areas. It is a coordinated project, led by the Barcelona Public Health Agency, which will run from 2009 to 2012, involving 15 research groups from 13 European countries.
