SCHI webinar was a special scientific event for graduate students, researchers, and faculty members of universities and training centers presented by Professor William C. Cockerham, Distinguished Professor of Sociology and Chair Emeritus, University of Alabama at Birmingham, he is one of the world's leading professors in the field of health sociology, who has written several books in the field of social determinants of health (SDH).

The SDH have an important influence on health inequities - the unfair and avoidable differences in health status seen within and between countries. In countries at all levels of income, health and illness follow a social gradient: the lower the socioeconomic position, the worse the health. Addressing SDH appropriately is fundamental for improving health and reducing longstanding inequities in health, which requires action by all sectors and civil society.
