Abstract

Reflection study that aimed to present the Social Determinants of Health (DSS) and discuss its relationship with breastfeeding and its ability to contribute to the reduction of health inequities, based on the concept of SDH proposed by the World Health Organization. Two thematic axes guided the discussions and reflections: “DSS and breastfeeding” and “Breastfeeding as a strategy to reduce health inequities. Understanding the relationship of SDH in BF is extremely important for collective health and contributes to the effectiveness of breastfeeding; encouragement of women's empowerment and protagonism; guarantee of their health rights and that of their children; and in professional training. Considering this relationship in the training of health professionals can contribute to improving breastfeeding rates, reducing inequities in health and improving maternal and child health in the Brazilian population.
