Evidence and resources to act on health inequities, social determinants and meet the SDGs (2019)



The resources provide evidence on the key social determinants of health. They can help Ministries of Health, other government departments and partner organizations to ensure:

  • Health is well integrated across the SDGs
  • Health is seen as a contributing sector to the attainment of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
  • SDG policies and actions do not have a negative impact on health or worsen inequalities.

The SDGs are powerful mechanisms to improve health and to reduce health inequities.
