International Seminar

Social Determinants of Health:
The MDGs and Beyond

Bali, 29th & 30th of August 2013



Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) has been being the national and international focus since year 2000 to 2015. The achievement of MDGs is important since it implies the fulfillment of basic human needs that frees human beings from poverty and enables access to education, health, safe water and healthy environment.

Accelerations in many development aspects by addressing the social determinants of health has been conducted to achieve health-related MDGs in 2015. However, the achievement of MDGs by some countries facing the weak governance, conflicts and epidemiological and demographical transitions is still off track. In these remaining two years, MDGs are less likely to be achieved by millions of people who are suffered from poverty, illness, and lack of education.

That condition has induced national and international thinking of what efforts should be undertaken to optimize the achievement of MDGs and what will be done after the end of MDGs in 2015. In depth analysis of a wide range of experiences to address social determinants of health and to achieve MDGs in various settings would be important lesson learnt to tell us what works and where the focus should be put on. The feature of current implementation of MDGs can be used to design a sustainable future development framework.

The achievement and sustainability of MDGs require collaborated efforts of public and private sectors and also a strong community participation. Therefore, Udayana University aspires to conduct an International Seminar to provide valuable opportunity for all international & national development actors to share, to discuss and to learn from each other's experiences.


  1. To provide an opportunity for international and national researcher and practitioners from public and private sectors to disseminate their findings regarding social determinants of health, efforts to achieve MDGs and also ideas of post MDGs strategies.
  2. To develop innovative methods to address unachieved MDGs in order to improve community health status.
  3. To develop recommendations for government and related stakeholders based on the up to date research findings in order to support the development of evidence based policy and interventions with regards to social determinants of health and post MDGs 2015.
