New World Report on Social Determinants of Health Equity: Online Discussion

World Health Organization



Member States of the World Health Organization (WHO) requested that the Director-General reflect on progress since the Commission on the Social Determinants of Health Report and make recommendations for future actions in a new World Report.

The World Report will be presented in three sections:

  1. The context and the problem, linking major crises including climate change, conflict, COVID-19, unfair economic systems and discrimination.
  2. The ‘What’ and the ‘How,’ which will include around a dozen illustrative and specific intervention areas, including pathways for implementation.
  3. An Action Agenda for the next decade on social determinants of health equity and the specific role of different constituencies.
