Social Determinants of Health
‘the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life. These forces and systems include economic policies and systems, development agendas, social norms, social policies and political systems.’ – World Health Organisation describes the Social Determinants of Health.
cohealth considered these social determinants in the development of our Integrated Health Promotion plan as they impact on the health and wellbeing of the communities we work within.
