Social Determinants of Health
Demographic characteristics of the population, indicators of community health status, and multi-sector infrastructure and resources for health, behavioral health, public health, and other relevant resources.
Many people can’t afford things like healthy foods, health care, and housing. People with steady employment are less likely to live in poverty and more likely to be healthy.
Healthcare Access & Quality
People without insurance are less likely to have a primary care provider, and they may not be able to afford the health care services and medications they need. Strategies to increase insurance coverage rates are critical for making sure more people get important health care services, like preventive care and treatment for chronic illnesses.
