In February 2014, The Lancet - University of Oslo Commission published its report: The Political Origins of Health Inequity: Prospects for Change.
This report examines power disparities and dynamics across a range of policy areas that affect health and that require improved global governance.The case analyses show how, in the contemporary global governance landscape, power asymmetries between actors with conflicting interests shape political determinants of health.
One of the recommendations of the Commission was to establish an Independent Scientific Monitoring Panel to carry forward of the Commission's messages and provide more research on the complex interaction between global governance and health.
