In February 2014, Lancet-University of Oslo Commission on Global Governance for Health published its report: The Political Origins of Health Inequity: Prospects for Change. On the Commission's recommendation, the University of Oslo established an Independent Panel to follow up on the report.

The Panel aims to advance debate on the political determinants of health inequities, the transnational norms, policies and practices that arise from political interaction across all sectors that affect health. Its secretariat is hosted by the Global Health Politics research group at the University of Oslo's Centre for Development and the Environment. 

In 2018 the Panel organised the #UHCPolitics conference in Oslo and, in 2019, the #Tek4HealthEquity conference in New York.
