Framing health inequalities for local intervention: comparative case studies

, : Framing health inequalities for local intervention: comparative case studies. Sociology of Health & Illness 34(1): 49-63

This article explores how health inequalities are constructed as an object for policy intervention by considering four framings: politics, audit, evidence and treatment. A thematic analysis of 197 interviews conducted with local managers in England, Scotland and Wales is used to explore how these framings emerge from local narratives. The three different national policy regimes create contrasting contexts, especially regarding the different degrees of emphasis in these regimes on audit and performance management. We find that politics dominates how health inequalities are framed for intervention, affecting their prioritisation in practice and how audit, evidence and treatment are described as deployed in local strategies.

The effect of cold or isolation stress on neuroinvasiveness and virulence was investigated in mice inoculated with an attenuated WNV (WN-25) strain. The WN-25 variant differed from the parent strain by its inability to kill mice after I.P. injecti...

The mode of dispersal of T. pityocampa is deduced from a detailed analysis of the patterns of behaviour of adult insects on Mount Ventoux (Vaucluse). It depends on the travelling capacity of the female (>2 km. at 10-15 km./hr.) and the ability...
