Description:

This set of documents, commissioned by Public Health England (PHE), and written by the UCL Institute of Health Equity, address the role of employment opportunities and good quality work in improving health.

These papers provide a summary of evidence on the effects of unemployment and poor working conditions on health and the unequal distribution of these effects. They then outlines the potential actions that can be taken in local areas around four specific topics:

- Workplace interventions to improve health and well-being
- Working with local employers to encourage, incentivise and enforce good quality work
- Interventions to increase employment opportunities and retention for people with a long-term health condition or disability
- Interventions to increase employment opportunities and retention for older people

The full evidence review and four shorter summary briefings are available to download above.

This document is part of a series. An overview document which provides an introduction to this and other documents in the series, and links to the other topic areas, is available on the ‘Local Action on health inequalities’ project page. A video of Michael Marmot introducing the work is also available on our videos page.
