Resources on the Social Determinants of Health

If you're looking for resources that explain the social determinants of health, please check out the American Public Health Association's (APHA) The Nation's Health series on the social determinants of health including data write-ups, infographics, and more (http://thenationshealth.aphapublications.org/site/misc/socialdeterminants.xhtml).

Instead of addressing poor health outcomes one patient at a time, by addressing the social determinants of health (housing, income, education, etc.), we can bolster important protective factors and therefore decrease and prevent violence and injury in our communities.
