The review identified the most effective evidence-based strategies for reducing health inequalities in England and made the following recommendation:</p><p> </p><p>“Tobacco control is central to any strategy to tackle health inequalities as smoking accounts for approximately half of the difference in life expectancy between the lowest and highest income groups. Smoking-related death rates are two to three times higher in low-income groups than in wealthier social groups.”</p><p> </p><p>The new tobacco control plan is currently being developed and Ministers will decide on an appropriate publication date in due course.</p> more like this
