Social Status and Support Network

Income and Social Status:

Higher income and social status lead to better health.Employed persons, having more control over their working conditions, are healthier than unemployed persons. Income levels also determine the food intake and the nutritional levels therein. In case of inequality in income, different sections of the community do not enjoy similar health standards. Although those with higher incomes can afford better health services, the expansion of public health services and the rising incomes of the poor would increase the availability of health services to the poor also.

Social Support Networks:

Greater support from families, friends and communities is linked to better health. Culture (i.e. customs, traditions and beliefs) of the family and community influence the health status of the individuals in ways specific to each.
