Ten years after the August 2008 release of the report of the WHO Commission on Social Determinants of Health, it is important to reflect on the fate of its recommendations for reducing ‘health inequity’. The article describes some key developments in the decade, notably in understanding the etiology of health inequalities, and then juxtaposes a hopeful comparison with of an earlier (1987) UN Commission on Environment and Development with a sceptical view based on the expanding social science literature on the politics of economic inequality.
