Research Platform

EuroHealthNet’s research platform identifies and promotes evidence-based approaches to health, equity and wellbeing. Associate members are leading centres of research, social equity and public health. Its success is built on collaboration between decision makers, and researchers and their results. It provides an evidence base for policies and practices which tackle health inequalities and environmental threats to health. It helps researchers collaborate, build consortia, and find funding.

CHAIN is the Centre for Global Health Inequalities Research, which brings together researchers from all global regions and different research disciplines to advance the current state-of-the-art. It does this by offering new insights from social, laboratory-based and natural experiments into the causal mechanisms linking socioeconomic status and health. It brings together academia, the UN system, civil society and the private sector in a common organisational body to reduce the distance between research, policy and practice.

EuroHealthNet is a partner in CHAIN's Global Health Inequalities project (2019-2025), which aspires to make CHAIN a world-leading centre and research network for the international study of global health inequalities. 

More information is available on the CHAIN website and in its annual report, CHAIN at a Glance 2020.
