Social determinants of health

Interim Statement of the Commission on Social Determinants of Health 2007

The Interim Statement sets out the Commission’s vision and goals, the problems it seeks to ameliorate, and the intellectual foundation for a social determinants approach. In doing so, the Interim Statement is a resource for stakeholders concerned with social determinants of health and health equity, as they build towards a global movement. Recommendations for action, based on the evidence gathered across all the Commission’s work streams, will be made in the Final Report to be published later this year.
