Discusses social justice as a matter of life and death and examines this in the context of the social determinants of health. A girl born today can expect to live for more than 80 years if she is born in some countries – but less than 45 years if she is born in others. Within countries there are dramatic differences in health that are closely linked with degrees of social disadvantage. In its final report, the Commission on Social Determinants of Health calls on the WHO and all governments to lead global action on the social determinants of health with the aim of achieving health equity.
