DRIVERS (2012-2014) – Addressing the strategic Determinants to Reduce health Inequity Via Early childhood, Realising fair employment, and Social protection is a research project funded by the 7th Framework Programme, focused on three of the key drivers of health inequalities:
The research will be undertaken by a consortium of research bodies – University College London, Dusseldorf University and the CHESS (Swedish Centre for Health Equity Studies) – in partnership with organisations representing the public health sector, civil society and business (EuroHealthNet, Eurochild, Business in the Community and the European Anti-Poverty Network). With expertise in co-ordinating EU projects and EU policy issues, EuroHealthNet will manage the project and lead on advocacy research and dissemination. Partners will contribute to case studies, test methodologies and apply participatory approaches to ensure that outcomes are grounded in socio-economic realities. Research outcomes will contribute to meeting EU2020 targets and related flagship initiatives.
