WHO Member States need policy products that provide clear lines for action, with compelling narratives to make sense of the complexity of policy coherence in the era of the Sustainable Development Agenda. This requires scientists to draw together a complex web of evidence from multiple disciplines and analyses on the determinants of health. The Southgate Institute will contribute to developing this evidence, with a focus on:
- non-communicable diseases
- urban planning (including housing)
- digital technologies
- the nexus of primary health care with these social determinants of health, as current areas of high global public health interest.
They will be taken as three examples to apply a common framework, drawing together the chief pathways associated with the production of health inequities.
