In many public health circles, the social determinants of health (SDOH) are often discussed. However, there are few published comparisons of how specific jurisdictions implement SDOH-based policies and programs to improve health equity. Further, how do these jurisdictions achieve results that reduce health inequalities?

Based on SDOH publications from recent decades, seven key societal level investments have been identified that may help achieve health equity over the life-course of an individual. Evidence from these studies illustrates the extent to which these methods have achieved expected goals in Scotland, England and Wales, and Canada.
