Social Determinants of Health: Understanding the Causes of the Causes
Jul 28, 2020

The Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) is a central dogma to the field of public health. There are many different definitions of SDOH from reputable organizations, however, in its simplest form, it refers to the social and economic conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age - working as a system to influence the health of populations. Linda Holdbrook joins the Public Health Insight Podcast to discuss some of these SDOH as identified by the World Health Organization and the importance of incorporating these determinants to achieve effective public health practice. As a prelude to our next episode, we ask the question whether racism or racial discrimination, should replace ‘race’ as a social determinant of health. What do you think?

We would love it if you followed us and shared your thoughts with us through direct messages on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or by emailing us at ThePublicHealthInsight@gmail.com
