ICC contributes to WHO Europe review of social determinants of health and the health divide
ICC contributes to WHO Europe review of social determinants of health and the health divide ICC's
President Prof. Tomris Turmen contributed to the recent European 
review of social determinants of health and
health divide. The review was 
recently published by the Lancet. The European region has seen
remarkable 
heath gains in those populations that have experienced progressive improvements in the
conditions in which people are born, grow, live, and work. However, inequities, both between and within
countries, persist. The 
review reported here, of inequities in health between and within countries across the 53
Member States of the WHO European region, was commissioned to 
support the development of the new
health policy framework for Europe: Health 2020. Much more is understood now about the extent, and
social 
causes, of these inequities, particularly since the publication in 2008 of the report of the Commission on
Social Determinants of Health. The European 
review builds on the global evidence and recommends policies
to ensure that progress can be made in reducing health inequities and the health divide across all countries,
including those with low incomes. Action is needed-on 
the social determinants of health, across the life course,
and in wider 
social and economic spheres-to achieve greater health equity and protect future generations.
