Foundational documents in health equity: A curated list
NCCDH staff chose seven documents that have contributed nationally and globally to an understanding of how social, political and economic power structures determine the distribution of wealth, income and other resources that have a direct impact on people’s health. This curated list provides short descriptions of and links to publications that have influenced the strategic direction of many Canadian public health actions, and continue to fuel our efforts to reduce health inequities. These documents provide an excellent starting point for people wanting to learn more about the broad context of health equity work, in Canada and globally.
