Interim second report on social determinants of health and the health divide in the WHO European Region

This is the second interim report of the European Review on health divide and inequalities in health. This European Review, commissioned by WHO Europe and chaired by Sir Michael Marmot, will inform the new European policy for health – Health 2020. It will accelerate action on socially determined health inequities by developing policies that work in low-,middle- and high-income countries. It draws on best practices, examples and experience of addressing social determinants of health and health inequities in the Region and how to take this to scale. One of the key goals of the review is to identify what works and how to implement it across the diverse context of the European Region. This second interim report already outlines some of the areas emerging as key. These include a focus on health assets, addressing processes that increase people’s vulnerability and the whole of-government approach.
