Abstract

Social inequality in health is one of the most challenging of problems for all Public Health services. Health reports and the development of guidelines in this area are very demanding tasks. Based on the latest academic research on tackling inequalities in health, the article shows how two German cities, Potsdam and Hamburg, started to place inequality in children's health on the public agenda. With reference to research and public health policy in the Netherlands, the authors propose that the German local health departments develop similar methods of intervention in cooperation with all relevant partners in the health and social services.
