International conference "Reducing health inequalities from a regional perspective"
On 8 and 9 November 2010, over 270 participants from European Union countries attended a conference in Genk to debate and discuss the issue of health inequalities. Figures show that people living in poorer circumstances and those lower down the social ladder have a shorter life expectancy.
