This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the role of action research in addressing health inequalities in Wales. It explains that much of the evidence on social determinants of health indicates that the most important determinants are nothing to do with the institutional domain of health at all. The chapter commends the accomplishments of the Sustainable Health Action Research Programme (SHARP), which has systematically sought to add to the understanding of both the character of health inequalities and of the possibilities for taking intelligent local action to address them.

Keywords:   health inequalities, action research, Wales, social determinants, health, SHARP
