HIV Care Continuum and the Social Determinants
Social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, live, work, and age. Since 2003 when the World Health Organization (WHO) suggested that these factors directly impact health outcomes for individuals and populations, considerable research has been published to prove the relationship between issues like education, socio-economic status, and health.
HIV providers have begun to discuss how providers might address social determinants of health (SDH) for their clients. In 2016, Capacity for Health collaborated with regional health planners to discuss the relationship between SDH and HIV. The outcome of this conversation is the attached graphic. We encourage you to learn more about the social determinants of health through the videos and other links on our site and engage your organizations in a similar conversation.
