COMISION PARA REDUCIR LAS DESIGUALDADES SOCIALES EN SALUD EN ESPANA. A proposal of policies and interventions to reduce social inequalities in health in Spain. Gac Sanit [online]. 2012, vol.26, n.2, pp. 182-189. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0213-91112012000200017.

In November 2008, at the request of the Directorate General of Public Health of the Ministry of Health and Social Policy, the Commission to Reduce Social Inequalities in Health in Spain was established with a mandate to develop a proposal for interventions to reduce health inequalities. This article aims to present the work carried out and the documents prepared by the Commission. The Commission, consisting of 18 members, conducted a situational analysis of health inequalities and of the policies to reduce them, reviewed international documents and consulted 56 experts from distinct fields to develop a proposal for recommendations to reduce health inequalities. In May 2010, the Commission presented the document "Moving toward equity: a proposal for policies and interventions to reduce social inequalities in health in Spain". The document listed a total of 166 recommendations, divided into 14 areas and ordered by priority. These recommendations highlight that health inequalities cannot be reduced without a commitment to promote health and equity in all policies and to move toward a fairer society.
