The prerequisites for good health vary in different parts of Västra Götaland. Health is unequally distributed among socio-economic groups, women and men, girls and boys.

Living conditions based on equity, equal opportunities and social integration are of importance for good health and sustainable development. Opportunities to participate and exert an influence have a positive effect on integration and oppose discrimination that might lead to social exclusion. Access to social networks and arenas creates opportunities for participation, commitment and an ability to act.

To feel safe is a right and basic for the opportunities to take part in social life.
