    Abstract

    It is almost exactly 13 years since I received a call from the World Health Organization asking me whether I would consider being a Commissioner on the Commission on the Social Determinants of Health. What an opportunity! I rapidly reorganised my diary and was able to accept the invitation and attend the first Commission on the Social Determinants meeting in Chile in March 2006. Three years later, we presented our final report. We set the goal of closing the health equity gap in a generation.
