[Comment] Rising wealth, improving health? Adolescents and inequality

The linkage between social inequalities and health disparities is well established.1 Less well described are the connections between social inequalities during childhood and adolescence and adult health status.2 Additionally, little is known about changes in social inequalities during early life, and virtually nothing is known about how these changes might affect social gradients in non-communicable diseases (NCDs) later in life. In The Lancet, Frank Elgar and colleagues3 break new ground by examining secular trends in adolescents in socioeconomic inequalities and health disparities in factors contributing to NCDs.
