Abstract

Abstract: Health promotion and health inequalities are both part of one system. Adopting a life course perspective on interventions might help to minimise current health inequalities and boost equity by leveraging on the social determinants of health. Using retrospective data of SHARE, this study is aimed at analysing whether and how some health promotion behaviours (in terms of lifestyle) change the self-perception of health in late adulthood. Approaching health through the life course perspective can be useful to pursue innovative and more effective public health promotion policies by acting on its socioeconomic determinants during people’s lives.
