Social Determinants of Health

Everything influences our well-being: where we are born, how we grow, live and work, what health system we have and what public policies are adopted.

It is the social determinants of health that explain what differentiates population groups in the way they are exposed to disease and life risk. Influencing these determinants, through public policy, is essential to guarantee the right to health.
