Overview

This document presents a Roadmap for Action, i.e., corporate integration of equity, human rights, gender and social determinants across the World Health Organization (WHO): all programmes, offices and key management processes. The Roadmap has three main directions:

  • provide guidance on the integration of sustainable approaches, which advance health equity, promote and protect human rights, are gender-responsive and address social determinants in WHO programmes and institutional mechanisms;
  • promote disaggregated data analysis and health inequality monitoring;
  • provide guidance on the integration of sustainable approaches, which advance health equity, promote and protect human rights, are gender-responsive and address social determinants, into WHO’s support at country level.
