Description:

This recently published book highlights actions to improve health equity based on findings from the nine global Knowledge Networks that were established during the WHO Commission on Social Determinants of Health. 

Their task was to synthesize existing evidence and identify effective and appropriate actions to improve health equity in nine thematic areas:
- globalization;
- gender;
- social exclusion;
- early child development;
- urban settings;
- employment conditions;
- health systems;
- public health programs; and
- measurement and evidence. 

The evidence reinforces the fundamental impact of social determinants on health outcomes and in creating health inequities.
