June 24, 2019
Tamara Steger, Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy, is a contributing author to the second WHO environmental health inequalities assessment report that was launched on the WHO High-Level Conference on Health Equity in Ljubljana last week.
"The report documents the magnitude of environmental health inequalities within countries through 19 inequality indicators on urban, housing and working conditions, basic services and injuries. Inequalities in risks and outcomes occur in all countries in the WHO European Region, and the latest evidence confirms that socially disadvantaged population subgroups are those most affected by environmental hazards, causing avoidable health effects and contributing to health inequalities."
The report as well as the summaries are available at http://www.euro.who.int/en/EHinequalities2019
