Resum

Health inequalities caused by socioeconomic factors violate social justice principle. Therefore, policies in Public Health should try to eliminate them. Two main strategies aim to reduce health inequalities: the promotion of healthy lifestyles appealing to individuals (i) and the increasing of life standards for all the population (ii). Here I present why the former, broadly extended in West Europe under the lifestyle drift phenomenon, has severe limitations. In order to do so I will explore how socioeconomic determinants of health shape individual’s ability to adhere to healthy behaviours specially in the specific context that we are currently living (COVID-19 crisis) taking as a reference the Great Recession crisis of 2008.
