This chapter examines the government's attempts to promote health and tackle inequality using a range of partnership initiatives in England. It suggests that the government initiatives are to be lauded and that in order for them to be more effective further research and development is urgently required, in particular to identify the social processes that enhance or obstruct health development. It explains that social processes lie and the core of health promotion and initiatives and they are particularly important in initiating and maintaining partnerships and alliances in the light of local, national or international changes.

Keywords:   health inequality, health promotion, partnership, England, social processes, alliances
