This presentation introduces a framework for identifying, arraying, and evaluating the evidence regarding the fundamental social, economic, and ecological determinants of population health and health disparities; explores the role of related development policies in influencing these fundamental determinants; and suggests alternative models of more health-centered policy and program design incorporating a consideration of the fundamental determinants of health. The vision for reinventing public health is grounded in the concept of a “healthy republic” – in which public decision making takes into account the impacts of policies related to fundamental determinants on the health of the populations targeted by these policies. The central thesis underlying the presentation is that to effectively improve population health and reduce health disparities, policymaking in a variety of domains must take into account policies that address the fundamental social, economic, and ecological determinants of health.
