Abstract
In this edition of the journal, Jokinen et al. report on a population based study of Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia (SAB) in Finland. They observe increasing incidence of cases over time that are associated with an increase in blood culture sampling. As compared to methicillin-sensitive SAB that increases during the study period, the incidence of methicillin-resistant SAB increases and then decreases. The proportion of cases with penicillin-sensitive SAB markedly increases in the study representing 43% of isolates in the most recent year of surveillance. While much attention and focus is typically placed on methicillin-resistant SAB, the major part of the burden of illness associated with SAB is from methicillin-sensitive and penicillin-sensitive strains. A narrow focus on prevention of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus will only have a limited impact on the overall burden of disease due to SAB.

Abstract
The article by Susanne Hagen and colleagues on Health Promotion at Local Level in Norway discusses actions by municipal governments to assess and address heath inequities within their respective regions, as required under the Norwegian Public Health Act (PHA). Although the broad intent of the Norwegian government is to encourage action on social determinants of health (SDH), Hagen et al find that many of the initiatives undertaken by municipalities 'tend to cash out as single, targeted initiatives,' and focus on individual behaviours. In this commentary, I use the concept of place-based policy and ideas from policy theory on the institutional behaviours of public policy agencies and services, to discuss reasons behind this narrowing of perspective and policy action. I argue in favour of an alternative approach involving public agencies and services supporting processes of community-led action and social change.
