People    Readings     News
Dear reader,

During the last four years we have advanced in our knowledge of the impacts of structural policies on health inequalities. The multidisplinary team that conforms SOPHIE has published around 60 peer-reviewed articles (and more to come!). That is a great achievement in the academic field, but also, SOPHIE researchers have been actively working in the public communication of our research. We have produced two videos to share our results and conclusions to a wide audience, and also, we have published different articles in newspapers and blogs to disseminate the project. Please, check our Conclusions Section

Our results, conclusions and policy recommendations of the different workpackages have been summarized in a Conclusions Booklet pdf, which you are very welcome to read, share, and comment! Do not hesitate to download. It is a brief and reader-friendly document.


In this occasion we will not present hard evidence or novel methodologies. Please, let us share with you some pictures of our partners and meetings as an acknowledgement of the efforts and energies that the project has involved:
