An Asia Pacific Spotlight on Health Inequity Taking Action to Address the Social and Environmental Determinants of Health Inequity in Asia Pacific

In this report we consider how a “globalised concept” such as social determinants and health equity fits in the diverse local contexts of the Asia Pacific region. The way in which the drivers of health inequities play out, and the degree to which action is taken to address health inequities vary greatly between different political, social and cultural contexts and regions. To translate the global momentum in action on the determinants of health inequity, a more nuanced regional and local analysis of the issues and solutions is required.
