New WHO resource aims to reduce health inequalities

The WHO has opened the gates to a trove of European health information. The database, called the ‘European Health Information Gateway‘, is open to the public and the WHO says it is a source of curated, reliable health data that is easy to navigate.

According to the WHO, health inequalities exist in Europe in part because policy-making authorities do not have access to sound health information. Where such information exists, it tends to be incomplete and difficult to access. The WHO is using Gateway as one of the ways it is addressing this issue.
