DRIVERS was a three-year research project funded by the 7th Framework programme aiming to find links and best ways to tackle health equity through policy and practice in early childhood development, employment and working conditions, and income and social protection. EuroHealthNet was also researching the best methodologies for effective advocacy and knowledge transfer and translation.
The most important resources that came forth from this project were:
