Education Policy for Health Equality: Lessons for the Nordic Region
Responsible organisation
2019 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

In the Nordic countries, health is linked to educational attainment to a higher extent than to income. Studies have now shown that the progressive pedagogy which generally characterizes Nordic teaching is likely to actually increase social disparities in health.

The Education Policy for Health Equality – Lessons for the Nordic Region report analyses the link between health, education, knowledge and pedagogical methods. Health is often linked to educational attainment, to a greater extent than to income. Therefore, it is important to examine the extent to which education policy can contribute to, or be counterproductive to, health equality and health equity.
