Methodological notes: Developing SDH Indicators for observatories on health inequities: The Brazilian experience

This document presents the experience of the Brazilian Observatory on Health Inequities, particularly the methodological aspects involved in gathering, organizing, developing and publishing indicators on health inequities provided by different data sources in Brazil. This document has the purpose of serving as a methodological reference for low and middle income countries (LMIC) that wish to develop similar initiatives within their own possibilities –particularly on their health information systems and health policy framework– with the final purpose of generating accurate and timely information on SDH and health inequities at national level to develop programs and policies in order to improve the health of the population
