Health inequity in EU
  • Life expectancy gaps Between EU Member States
    there is a 5-fold difference in deaths of babies
    under one year of age, a 14 year gap in life
    expectancy at birth for men and an 8 year gap for
    women
  • Large differences (up to 20 years) in the number
    of years lived in good health (Healthy Life
    Years)
  • Significant economic costs Health inequalities
    related losses have a significant impact on
    productivity - estimated to cost around 141
    billion annually
  • Increased poverty and social exclusion Health,
    poverty and social exclusion are strongly
    interrelated
