Abstract: The Final Report of the World Health Organization (WHO) Commission on the Social Determinants of Health is a substantial and important contribution to understanding the social factors that shape global health inequities. Although gender is highlighted as a key social determinant of health, the report's conceptual approach inappropriately equates gender and health with women's health. This essay discusses the analytic and policy implications of this shortcoming.
