Fair Society, Healthy Lives, the fourth Annual Balzan Lecture by 2004 Balzan Prizewinner Sir Michael Marmot, is a very timely contribution to the debate on what kind of society we should live in and the role of the state in creating such a society particularly in the field of health care. It is the latest in the Annual Balzan Lecture series destined for the general public.
Michael Marmot, b. 1945, Director of the International Institute for Society and Health and of the Institute of Health Equity, University College London, was awarded in 2004 the Balzan Prize for Epidemiology. Chair of the WHO Commission on Social Determinants of Health, he produced the report Closing the Gap in a Generation (2008). At the British Government’s request, he conducted the “Strategic Review of Health Inequalities in England post 2010”, which published its report Fair Society, Healthy Lives (2010). The Regional Director of WHO Europe invited him to conduct the “European Review of Social Determinants of Health and the Health Divide”, which reported in 2012.
