According to the World Health Organization (2014), monitoring of health inequality is an essential step for achieving health equity. My presentation will focus on findings on health inequalities in Ukraine as well as the comparative analysis of social inequalities in self-reported health and health outcomes in Ukraine vis-à-vis others European countries.
