A presentation from the HHRC's Symposium "Healthy Equit: Are we there yet?". The objectives of this presentation are to provide a brief overview of the main determinants (or causes) of health inequities, to review what mitigates disparities and what doesn’t and using examples from the Sudbury & District Health Unit, to share how a model, The Main Determinants of Health, Dahlgren and Whitehead(1993), can be used to guide policy, research, advocacy and program development.
