Social Determinants of Health

Social Determinants of Health are the structural factors and conditions that affect everyone’s health. People’s homes, schools, jobs and neighborhoods significantly influence health outcomes. Social determinants of health include socioeconomic status, the environment, neighborhood safety, social support networks, and access to resources to meet daily needs, such as safe housing and healthy foods. Where people live, learn, work and play matters. The Partnership seeks to create strong social and physical environments that promote health for all.
