Health Equity to Improve the Impact on People's Health
Discrimination Even When It Concerns Human Health
Keywords:Health equity, health disparity, infant mortality, socioeconomic, mental health
Although biology, genetics, and individual actions play a part in these inequalities, social, economic, and ecological variables have a greater impact on many clinical outcomes. Understanding the social determinants of health necessitates a movement toward a more "upstream" perspective -- that is, the factors that influence an individual's actions in the context in which they are formed. People live in settings that are shaped by policies, forces, and acts that have a long-term and generational impact on their individual choices and behaviors. Poverty, unemployment, poor education, insufficient housing, poor public transit, exposure to violence, and neighborhood deterioration (social or physical) are only a few of the elements that impact people's health, and they do so in unequal ways, adding to health disparities. The numerous players that make up the community ecosystem can be significant producers of health and well-being, and people are significantly influenced by the communities in which they work and reside. As a result, the focus of this research is on communities' pledge to provide chances for their members to reach their full health potential.
