This chapter considers the extent to which all governments pay little attention to or ignore research findings. It discusses examples, from the field of health, where evidence has been ignored. The chapter suggests that there are a number of important points arising from this broad finding, particularly those which affect women's health. It also argues that governments' lack of attention to research findings is probably the main reason why current inequalities in health provision are likely to continue: if inequalities in health are to be reduced, governments of all political persuasions must stop ignoring research findings.
