Social Determinants of Health

Social determinants of health (SDOH) can have a major impact on the overall well-being of individuals. Factors such as education, socioeconomic status, social isolation, and food insecurity are examples of many possible SDOH. The role of social determinants in shaping health, health care access, and medication adherence is noted in research, as is the importance of addressing them to achieve greater health equity.
