Social Determinants of Health

In the last section, we have explored the relationship between poverty and ill-health. There are, however, several other factors, referred to as ‘social determinants’ which also have significant impact on the health status of the people.

  1. Unemployment
  2. Social exclusion
  3. Transportation and
  4. Food.
