Capacity building and awareness raising to address the social deter... (PDF) includes a range of suggestions for actions that can be taken to facilitate efforts to address the social determinants of health (SDH) and to improve health equity. The document also provides resources that can be applied to support these actions. EuroHealthNet, in close collaboration with the International Union on Health Promotion and Education (IUHPE), dentified six priority areas to build capacity to address the SDH and to improve health equity. This document was initially developed for DETERMINE partners, who selected at least one action and undertook a related activity in one of the six priority areas, to build the capacity of their organisation and/or region or country to address the SDH and improve health equity. The suggested activities are diverse enough to be of interest to all who wish to work collaboratively to ensure that everyone has equal opportunities to good health. We hope that they will inspire you to take action!

This interactive document contains the following sections:
• Introduction - Capacity Building in the context of DETERMINE
