When it comes to causing health inequalities, environmental considerations play a significant role. Food, transport, green space and the built environment are all factors which can narrow or widen the health gap between rich and poor communities.

And that means policy makers are missing the co-benefits available from a holistic approach that can create a better environment and healthier people at the same time.
