Non-medical elements that impact health outcomes are referred to as social determinants of health (SDH). They are the circumstances under which individuals are born, grow, work, live, and age, as well as the larger collection of forces and institutions that shape the conditions of daily existence. Economic policies and systems, development objectives, societal norms, social policies, and political systems are examples of these forces and systems.
The SDH have a significant impact on health inequalities, which are the unjust and preventable variations in health status that exist within and across countries. Health and sickness follow a social gradient in nations of all income levels: the lower the socioeconomic position, the poorer the health.
