Achieving Health Equity: From Root Causes to Fair Outcomes

This is the Commission on Social Determinants of Health's Interim
Statement. It sets out the Commission's vision and goals, the problems
it seeks to ameliorate, and the intellectual foundation for a social
determinants approach. In doing so, the Interim Statement is a resource
for stakeholders concerned with social determinants of health and
health equity, as they build towards a global movement. Recommendations
for action, based on the evidence gathered across all the Commission's
work streams, will be made in the Final Report in May 2008.
