The first meeting of the European Review of Social Determinants & the Health Divide took place on 18/19 October at the Ministry of Health & Social Policy in Madrid, Spain. The Senior Advisory Board and Task Group Chairs joined the UCL and WHO teams to discuss the direction and the detail of the Review.

Professor Sir Michael Marmot chaired the two-year study which will aimed to highlight the relevance of the findings of the WHO Commission on Social Determinants of Health (published in 2008) and other new evidence to the European context, and translate them into policy proposals. It provided scientific evidence and a framework for future action on the social determinants of health.
