Social determinants of health : the solid facts / edited by Richard Wilkinson and Michael Marmot
AbstractPolicy and action for health need to be geared towards addressing the social determinants of health in order to attack the cases of ill health before they can lead to problems. This is a challenging task for both decision-makers and public health actors and advocates. The scientific evidence on social determinants is strong but is discussed mainly by researchers. This booklet is part of a WHO Regional Office for Europe campaign to present the evidence on social determinants in a clear and understandable form. The booklet identifies the broad implications for policy in ten selected areas. The campaign is meant to broaden awareness, stimulate and promote action
