The democratically elected may be interested in increasing the effectiveness of their policies through designs, implementations, and evaluations of much more consistent policies and programs. In a democracy, if governments do not give good results, they lose sympathy and possibly votes; therefore, its inefficiency has a high cost, and therefore, the way to improve performance based on the use of knowledge or evidence is sought. This paper seeks to display the debates which have evolved around the concept of evidence-based policy-making and to weigh its advantages and disadvantages by making reference to the newly emerging literature on the topic.

That is, systematic reviews and other sources of evidence should be incorporated into a wider analytical framework, the public health regime defined here as the specific legislative, social, political, and economic structures that have an impact on both public health and the appropriateness and effectiveness of public health interventions adopted. At the national level this approach would facilitate analysis at all levels of the policy framework, countering the current focus on individual interventions. It could also differentiate at the international level between those policies and interventions that are effective in different contexts and are therefore potentially generalizable and those that depend on particular conditions for success. The reduction of health inequalities has been an important part of the political agenda in the United Kingdom since the election of New Labour in
