New Resource--Discussion of the Commission on Social Determinants of Health

Irwin A, Valentine N, Brown C, Loewenson R, Solar O, et al. 
(2006) The Commission on Social Determinants of Health: Tackling the
social roots of health inequities. PLoS Med 3(6): e106.

Irwin and colleagues discuss why the WHO has created the Commission on
Social Determinants of Health, which aims to strengthen health equity
by "catalyzing policy and institutional change to address the social
determinants of health within countries, among institutions working in
global health, and within WHO itself."
