[Bien démarrer une vie saine: Niveler le gradient de santé chez les enfants, les jeunes et les familles dans l'Union européenne - Ce qui fonctionne]
In all EU countries there is a systematic correlation between level of health and social status – a step-wise decrease in health that comes with decreasing social position. This correlation exists amongst children and young people as well as amongst adults. These social gradients in health are harmful and unjust, particularly when it comes to children and young people, since adversity during the early years negatively impacts on health across the life-course.
This book aims to improve knowledge on what can be done to level-up gradients in health. It is based on research undertaken during GRADIENT, a project funded under the EU Seventh Framework Programme.
On the basis of concrete examples and national comparisons, it identifies measures that can be taken to level socio-economic gradients in health. It looks at:
Political and welfare-state factors
How universal policies on social protection, education and health systems can contribute to reducing gradients in health
Why social community capital matters
The importance of monitoring the distributional effects of all policies
The Gradient Evaluation Framework
The role of the EU in tackling social gradients in health
The book provides final recommendations for policy makers and practitioners to ensure that all children and young people in the EU get the right start to a healthy life.

[Rapport européen sur la santé périnatal : La santé et les soins des femmes enceintes et des bébés en Europe en 2010]
The Health and Care of Pregnant Women and Babies in Europe in 2010 released by the Euro-Peristat project is the most comprehensive report on the health and care of pregnant women and babies in Europe. The 250-page report brings together data from 26 European Union member states, plus Iceland, Norway and Switzerland. The first Euro-Peristat report, with data for 2004, was published in 2008. It found wide differences between the countries of Europe in indicators of perinatal health and care. This second report provides the opportunity to see whether gains in positive health outcomes have been achieved and whether inequalities between the countries of Europe have narrowed.
Euro-Peristat takes a new approach to health reporting. Instead of comparing countries on single indicators like infant mortality using a ‘league table’ approach, our report paints a fuller picture by presenting data about mortality, low birthweight and preterm birth alongside data about health care and maternal characteristics that can affect the outcome of pregnancy. It also illustrates differences in the ways that data are collected, and explains how these can affect comparisons between countries.
