Injuries, inequalities, and health: from policy vacuum to policy action
This chapter considers the public health burden of injuries and violence. It illustrates the range of inequalities that characterize the occurrence of injuries and violence, and highlights the scope for public health action. It considers the extent to which policies that reduce the overall burden of injuries may also reduce inequalities in their occurrence. It examines the reasons behind limited policy responses and suggests ways of promoting the agenda.
