This tool is being brought to the public health community by the World Health Organization with the aim of providing public health, and other practitioners on the social determinants of health, with a one-stop portal.
ACTION:SDH houses knowledge on the social determinants according to the five social determinants of health action areas identified in the World Conference on Social Determinants of Health in October 2011.
There are currently three main features to the tool, which we hope to develop jointly with you, and other partners within and beyond WHO:
- embedded web-pages pages on SDH knowledge relevant to the five action areas for SDH that were identified in the Rio Declaration;
- discussion forums that can be used to share tacit knowledge from practice - either by invitation only, or open to all members;
- a document repository that initially is housing selected WHO materials on SDH - documents are classified as Examples (case studies), Tools & Resources, and E-library.
Other standard website features also exist, such as an area for advertising upcoming training (Campus) and upcoming meetings (Events).
