Perils of place: identifying hotspots of health inequality
Perils of place: identifying hotspots of health inequality by the Grattan Institute, introduces a method of identifying small areas where health inequalities are entrenched and, without intervention, are likely to endure.
To build up the limited evidence of what works in reducing place-based health problems, the report recommends that government combine with Primary Health Networks and local communities to run three- to five-year trials of tailored programs in selected places. Rigorous evaluation is critical, so that the lessons from successful trials can be applied across the country.
