WHO is currently undertaking a public consultation on the draft Technical Paper for the World Conference on Social Determinants of Health (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 19-21 October, 2011) and has reached out to stakeholders globally. Due to considerable interest by Member States, international agencies, civil society organizations and technical partners, the consultation has been extended until Friday, 10 June 2011.

The draft Technical Paper is now also available in Portuguese and Spanish, thanks to the initiative and support of the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz) and PAHO/ WHO.

The Technical Paper aims to provide policy-makers with an overview of key strategies to implement action on social determinants of health to reduce health inequities and to contribute to broader development. The paper is organized around five Conference themes and its final version will inform discussions at the Conference. In particular, comments are sought on whether the draft fulfils its aims to inform the five themes, and whether any major strategies for implementation of action on social determinants have been omitted.
