      This report synthesises the early learning drawn from evaluations of 10 interventions that were identified as addressi ng child health outcomes. Although reducing health inequalities was not a specific goal of the programmes, the location of many of the initiatives in areas of disadvantage and the scope for the programmes to address social determinants of health and foster equality in child development means that the findings are of particular relevance to health inequality concerns.
