Social Determinants of Health Sectoral Briefing Series
The Social Determinants of Health Sectoral Briefing Series has been launched as a follow-up initiative to the Health in All Policies International Meeting, Adelaides, 2010. Research shows that health equity is driven by policies in other sectors as well as complex social, economic and political factors. By providing information on other sectors’ agendas and policy approaches and by illustrating areas for potential collaboration, the Series encourages a more systematic dialogue with other sectors.
