The link between social determinants, risk factors and health outcome is globally quite demonstrated. Much research is still needed to better understand the mechanism underneath these relationships. Although, study is still needed to define better measures of social determinants (both in relation to health outcome and risk factors), already existing data collection system on risk factors - surveillance - can offer several information on these relationships. Particularly, the observation of changes over time and trends can offer unique information on the effectiveness of health promotion programs and policies in decreasing (increasing) health inequalities.
Keywords: Social determinants, inequalities, health outcome, risk factors, surveillance, health promotion.
