The Health Equity 2020 Toolkit was developed by the department of Public Health of the Erasmus MC in close collaboration with Maastricht University, Health ClusterNET and our partners in our pilot regions: the Medical University of Lodz in Poland, and the Centre for Health and Development Murska Sobota in Slovenia.
The Health Equity 2020 project, including this toolkit, could not have happened without the financial support of the European Union in the framework of the Health Programme.
We thank our external reviewers from EuroHealthNet, Public Health England, and the Assembly of European Regions for their time and effort to help us improve the toolkit. We also thank all the authors of all the papers, tools, interventions, documents, and websites we refer to in our toolkit. We are happy to see that so many people are leading the way in this important field.
And finally, we thank all of our collaborating regions for their enthusiasm and effort during the project and for field-testing the toolkit. This provided us with the necessary feedback and experiences to make the toolkit as user-friendly as it can be.
