The social determinants of health (SDOH) consist of the conditions found in places where people live, play, learn, and work that affect health outcomes in various ways. Addressing these conditions can improve individual and population health while making progress toward health equity. For this reason the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) compiled a web portal providing resources for SDOH data, tools for action, programs and policy. Available tools include:
- Sources for data on SDOH
- CDC programs addressing SDOH
- Tools for putting SDOH into action
- Policy options to impact SDOH
