The Commission on Social Determinants of Health was set up by former World Health Organization Director-General J.W. Lee. It was tasked to collect, collate, and synthesize global evidence on the social determinants of health and their impact on health inequity, and to make recommendations for action to address that inequity.

Evidence indicates that actions within four main themes (early child development, fair employment and decent work, social protection, and the living environment) are likely to have the greatest impact on the social determinants of health and health inequities. A systematic search and analysis of recommendations and policy guidelines from intergovernmental organizations and international bodies identified practical policy options for action on social determinants within these four themes. Policy options focused on early childhood education and care; child poverty; investment strategies for an inclusive economy; active labour market programmes; working conditions; social cash transfers; affordable housing; and planning and regulatory mechanisms to improve air quality and mitigate climate change. Applying combinations of these policy options alongside effective governance for health equity should enable WHO European Region Member States to reduce health inequities and synergize efforts to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

This report describes the progress made by WHO European Member States in improving their health and environment situations over the last 20 years. The assessment focuses on the aspects of health related to clean water and air, chemical safety, noise and safety at work, and environments supporting safe mobility and physical activity. These issues arise from the four regional priority goals of the Children's Environment and Health Action Plan for Europe (CEHAPE), agreed at the Fourth Ministerial Conference on Environment and Health in 2004. Information collected by the European Environment and Health Information System forms the basis for the analysis. The report also presents the aspects of national policies on environment and health that are related to public governance and healthy public policy. It summarises the implementation, impact and challenges of CEHAPE in countries, using the information collected through a web-based survey conducted in November 2009.

The European health report is a flagship publication, published every three years. The 2012 report set the baseline for monitoring progress towards the six targets of the European policy framework, Health 2020. The 2015 report presents the progress made since the baseline. An assessment of the available data on all the targets reveals that the European Region is on track, but much potential remains for further health gains and reductions in inequalities. The 2015 report gives an update on the challenges in measuring and reporting on progress towards Health 2020, particularly in measuring well-being, and proposes new sources of qualitative evidence to describe and monitor well-being. Facts and figures are not enough to report meaningfully on what it means to be healthy and well in Europe. The 2015 European health report argues that new forms of evidence are necessary to fully capture this. Stronger international collaboration is required to advance the agenda for health-information research and development in the Region.

The latest edition of this classic, definitive reference work for all those involved in environmental health, is opened by a new chapter which discusses the changing approaches to Environmental Health. There are other new chapters on risk assessment and the epidemiology of non-infectious diseases with new introductory chapters both for food safety and occupational health and safety which place those activities into the rapidly changing conceptual and organisational contexts. There is additional work on meat hygiene to highlight developments in that area and substantial material on the enforcement function and on air pollution. There are also new organisational case studies.
