Social Determinants of Health Report

Tackling inequity at its source is a complex challenge that must start with addressing barriers to economic participation, education, and health care that are holding families of color—and the state’s economy—back from their fullest potential. This report will explore the social determinants of health that lead to such inequities, defined here as the conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play that affect a wide range of health and quality-of liferisks and outcomes.1 The social determinants of health fall into five domains: (1) economic stability; (2) education access and quality; (3) health care access and quality; (4) neighborhood and built environment; and (5) social and community context.2 The first section of the report provides Recommendations By Subject that impact these domains, while the second section outlines Subjects For Future Study.
