7. Addressing Health Inequalities in Hong Kong
The CUHK Institute of Health Equity (CUHK IHE) collaborated with the University College London Institute of Health Equity (UCL IHE) in 2021 to examine the health equity situation in Hong Kong.
The study gives an overview of the situation on health inequalities in Hong Kong, followed by in-depth analysis of some factors affecting health inequality and recommendations to improve them in the subsequent reports to be produced by the Institute. The results of the study revealed that while Hong Kong has the longest life expectancy worldwide, there are marked health inequalities and a ‘gradient’ of health among groups of different socio-economic status, ethnicity, gender and educational attainment.
