Summary The thirteen case studies presented in this publication describe experiences with implementing public health programs that intend to address social determinants and to have a great impact on health equity. They also document the real-life challenges in implementing such programs, including the challenges in scaling up, managing policy changes, managing intersectoral processes, adjusting design and ensuring sustainability.--Publisher's description
This publication complements the previous publication by the Department of Ethics, Equity, Trade and Human Rights entitled "Equity, social determinants and public health programmes", which analysed social determinants and health equity issues in 13 public health programmes, and identified possible entry points for interventions to address those social determinants and inequities at the levels of socioeconomic context, exposure, vulnerability, health outcomes and health consequences.-- Publisher's description
