Social Determinants

Social determinants of health are the conditions in which people live, grow, and work. These factors shape an individual's ability to receive adequate care and reach their full potential. CHER's aim is to elucidate these determinants and identify health needs through rigorous research methods to inform and generate knowledge to design, implement and evaluate health-related programs and policies.
