This chapter evaluates the contemporary evidence about health inequalities and discusses the ways in which new evidence has allowed for the development of much more subtle and fine-grained approaches to the process of explaining health inequalities. It examines the relationship between health status and health services, and the way in which a partial rehabilitation of the concept of society since Margaret Thatcher has created space for a more creative relationship between the social sciences and the politics of health inequalities. The chapter explains that community regeneration or neighbourhood renewal and tackling health inequalities in Wales both involve interventions in wicked issues or problems.
