Healthy People 2030 has an increased and overarching focus on social determinants of health (SDOH). In line with this focus, we provide literature summaries that offer a snapshot of the latest research related to SDOH. These summaries explore a range of key factors — such as discrimination, social cohesion, access to health services, and poverty — and examine how these issues can impact health outcomes and health disparities. We’ve updated all of the summaries, which are now available!
Check out the updated SDOH literature summaries today.
Each SDOH literature summary now includes a synopsis of related Healthy People 2030 objectives and relevant Healthy People 2030 evidence-based resources. We’ve also organized the summaries by the 5 SDOH domains so it’s easy for you to see with which SDOH domain they’re associated:
- Economic Stability
- Education Access and Quality
- Health Care Access and Quality
- Neighborhood and Built Environment
- Social and Community Context
Healthy People 2030 defines SDOH as “the conditions in the environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.” Learn more about SDOH and how they contribute to wide health disparities and inequities.
