Abstract Social deprivation also exists in an industrialised country like Switzerland where there are many different social economic levels; social inequalities have increased in the past years having a major impact on social economic determinants of health. Being aware of these determinants and systematically identifying them in patients has become crucial for the general practitioner in order to improve the way s/he delivers care and interacts with more vulnerable populations. Because the general practitioner is often in contact with people of different socioeconomic levels, s/he is a key witness of social inequalities in health. S/he therefore has a responsibility to document them, to promote health, to prevent disease and be an advocate for the disadvantages in order to influence these social determinants of health.
