Social Determinants Of Health

Social determinants of health, which encompass the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age, interplay profoundly with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being) directly intersects with these determinants, as addressing social factors like education, income, and living conditions can significantly improve health outcomes. SDG 1 (No Poverty) and SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities) are also key, as socioeconomic status is a major determinant of health. SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) are intrinsically tied to health, as they directly impact people's knowledge about health and their access to resources for maintaining good health. Further, SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) impact health through the provision of safe, clean, and peaceful living conditions.
