This chapter talks about the social determinants of health. It begins by reviewing the theoretical accounts of the ‘health transition’ and then seeks to adapt these to variations in the policy regimes. The discussion then shifts to Greece, where it is viewed as a health and welfare regime. The chapter analyses Greece's record on health outcomes up to 1981, before moving on to modern times.
