Heath matters and the Social determinants of health are a critical part of health equity. The (SDOH) Social Determinants of Health are the conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, play, and worship that affects a wide range of health risks and outcomes. Long-standing inequities in six key areas of social determinants of health are interrelated and influence a wide range of health and quality-of-life risks and outcomes. Examining these layered health and social inequities can help us better understand how to promote health equity and improve health outcomes. There has to be a starting point and 90 Days to Wellness is our starting point. We can heal our communities by starting with taking control of our health.
What is Health Equity?
Health equity is the state in which everyone has a fair and just opportunity to attain their highest level of health. Achieving this requires ongoing societal efforts to:
Address historical and contemporary injustices;
Overcome economic, social, and other obstacles to health and health care; and
Eliminate preventable health disparities.
To achieve health equity, we must change the systems and policies that have resulted in the generational injustices that give rise to racial and ethnic health disparities.
