Closing the health gap: The role of lifelong learning and social protection
Ricardo Sabates, Rachel Sabates-Wheeler, Sarah Wahby (née Hodgson)
Social Determinants of Health brings together a selection of proceedings drawn from a major conference held in London 2008—this was the first independent, inter-disciplinary and critical gathering to assess the Commission's Final Report, and the results were impressive. Apart from providing searching analyses of different sections of the document, the presentations also provided the basis for a fruitful engagement between academics and those involved in policy design and implementation. The papers presented in this volume provide us with numerous insights into the genesis, management and reception of global health projects, as they unfolded in international, national and local contexts. These analyses will be of interest to teachers, students, NGOs, national governments, global and international funding agencies, and others involved in health initiatives and advocacy.
