The World Health Organisation (WHO) has published five new policy guides for addressing health inequity.  The guides have been produced by New Zealand Doctor Belinda Loring, a past Fellow of Health Promotion Forum with a strong interest in health equity and action on the social determinants of health.  While she was still in New Zealand Dr Loring worked on health equity and public health at local, regional and national government levels, with a strong focus on Māori health inequities.   The equity action spectrum: taking a comprehensive approach Alcohol and inequities Injuries and inequities Obesity and inequities Tobacco and inequities
