  8. More likely to reduce inequalities Improving accessibility of services Prioritising disadvantaged groups Offering intensive support Starting young

  9. Disadvantaged groups tend : • to be harder to reach • to find it harder to change behaviour • to receive less benefit from lifestyle change or access to services interventions with more disadvantaged groups may need to be much more intensive and targeted than might be appropriate for more advantaged groups: information based approaches such as food labelling, pamphlets in doctors’ surgeries, and mass media campaigns, or those which require people to take the initiative to sign up for, may be less effective among more disadvantaged groups

  10. An intervention which, in general, works (e.g. dental health education) might have no effect on health inequalities if all SES groups benefit equally increase health inequalities if the rich benefit more reduce health inequalities if the poor benefit more

  11. Less likely to reduce inequalities • Information based campaigns • Written materials • Campaigns reliant on people taking the initiative to opt in • Campaigns/messages designed for the whole population • Whole school health education approaches

  12. Young people are the future generation so we need to help them before they become useless to society. What use is a twenty-five year old man with no qualifications, no job and messes around with alcohol and drugs?
