Health inequalities and equal opportunities

Certain groups of Utrecht residents have more often health problems or an unhealthy lifestyle than others. This mainly concerns people with a lower level of education and people who have difficulty to make ends meet. They more often have less chance of good health because of, for example, unfavorable living conditions, financial problems or a less good social network. We also see this more often among residents of Overvecht and Zuidwest, among people wilt a non-western migration background and among elderly.

In this special edition we describe the differences in health and underlying causes. With the results of this research, the municipality of Utrecht can work even more specifically on equal oppurtonities for a healthy life for everyone.
