Improving the Social Determinants of Health

Jamil Ahmed, Vikram Mehraj and Ahmed Laghari.

Abstract
When the report titled as “report of the working group
on inequalities in health” was submitted, in 1980, to
the government headed by Margaret Thatcher; it was
rejected by the conservative policy makers. The report
was based on the recommendations on the reducing
the income inequalities among the Britons through
taking equity-based initiatives in the areas of education
(also women’s’ education), health, housing, working
conditions and living environment of the people
(Social determinants of health-SDH).1 This was the
time when the neoliberal agenda prevailed in most
parts of the world. The developing countries were becoming
overtly dependent on the aid and debt incurred
by Western agencies such as IMF and the
World Bank.

Key words: Social Determinants of Health
