Social determinants of health are gaining attention among public health practitioners. The challenge is determining what specific steps public health practitioners should take in light of a somewhat limited evidence base.

Today, July 11, is World Population Day. On October 31 of this year, the world’s population is estimated to reach 7 billion people.

However, a world of 7 billion also poses challenges. Gaps between the rich and poor are increasing dramatically; urbanization and migration continue to put pressures on already crowded cities;…Continue
