Abstract in spanish: In recent years, Brazil channeled efforts around the global agenda for the health of people. In October 2011, with the technical and financial support of the Brazilian Government, the World Health Organization held the World Conference on the Social Determinants of Health, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The Rio Declaration, which came out of this global conference, included multiple commitments drawn up by the government representatives who were present. This process of debate and exchange of global experiences widened and, in June 2012 the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development was also held in Rio de Janeiro. Known as Rio+ 20, this global forum was attended by 190 nations and heads of state. They proposed changes especially in the ways in which the planet’s natural resources were being used. Besides environmental issues, other issues related to social policies such as health, education, work and housing were addressed. “The Future We Want for All”, the main document and product of this forum, received numerous contributions from global society. These discussions pushed for the implementation of global public policies that, through an extensive process of capacity building, translate these commitments of heads of states, from all over the world, into policies that act on social determinants of health, dealing with social inequities.
