Global Finance’s Impacts on Social Determinants of Health and Health Equity

Ronald Labonte

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review



Many of the improvements needed in the social determinants of health involve structural conflicts of interest between public and private sectors, and elite and non-elite groups.

Improving health equity requires strong governmental policy action focused on the redistribution of social policies, regulation of international trade through use of health equity impact assessments, and strengthening of human rights.
