GONZALEZ ROJO, Elena; ALVAREZ-DARDET, Carlos; LOPEZ FERNANDEZ, Luis Andrés  and  GRUPO DE TRABAJO DE SALUD PUBLICA ORIENTADA POR LOS DETERMINANTES SOCIALES DE LA SALUD. Towards a social determinants-oriented approach to public health: workshop report. Gac Sanit [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.5, pp.488-491.  Epub Dec 07, 2020. ISSN 0213-9111.

This article is the result of a workshop with public health experts held in Granada (Spain) in October 2015 in order to reflect upon the components of the framework that should be part of a public health approach based on the social determinants of health. Advocacy and training professionals in health advocacy were identified as key elements where this was needed. During the workshop, it was agreed that the gender perspective, the salutogenic approach, interdisciplinary work and particular attention to disadvantaged groups are crucial. The importance of working from a human rights’ framework and promoting legislative changes were also mentioned. Moreover, the group mentioned that even though much progress has been made identifying social determinants of health and creating conceptual frameworks, there is limited knowledge about how to intervene to reduce health inequality gaps in our societies.
