Under the heading of InEquality, challenges regarding health equality in Tyrol will be defined, in particular taking geographic characteristics but also social factors into account. Alongside epidemiological factors, behavioural factors and environmental conditions are fundamental for the development of good health as well as of disease. Which possible solutions lie within the purview of players from different profession to optimise health, maintaining environments and health care? How could this be achieved in both rural regions and urban agglomerations, considering social, family, occupational and public environments?
