Webinar: Acting across sectors - frameworks for moving forward on the social determinants of health

Frameworks are often used to visually represent complex ideas or concepts. Numerous frameworks exist to help explain the relationship between the social determinants and health experiences and outcomes. The Canadian Council on the Social Determinants of Health, a multi sectoral council commissioned a review of existing frameworks to identify those that support action across multiple sectors.

The review provides in-depth analysis of the seven frameworks deemed most useful for the purposes of leveraging action across sectors. These frameworks and the accompanying analysis can help shift public health practice towards more intersectoral, development-oriented upstream approaches.

The webinar will:

  • Explore components of relevant frameworks that support action across sectors
  • Highlight the use of selected frameworks in practice and policy settings
  • Discuss future directions for the development and application of frameworks
