Abstract or description

Environmental conditions are a major determinant of health and well-being but are not distributed
equally across the WHO European Region. Higher levels of environmental risk are often found in
disadvantaged population subgroups, leading to a need for targeted environmental and intersectoral
action to protect these groups and achieve environmental justice.

This resource package aims to generate awareness of the concept of environmental health inequalities and to support action against disparities in exposure to environmental risks at the national and subnational levels. It sets out the various dimensions of environmental health inequality; presents relevant methods and approaches for monitoring and assessment; and suggests ways to use this evidence for action. It also provides information on a range of tools and guidance documents that may be helpful for national and local actors tackling environmental inequalities and striving to improve health and health equity.

The publication is also available on this website in English and Russian
