The SDOH framework suggests that health outcomes are contextualized within the wider social environment in which a person works, learns, and lives. It also incorporates a life course perspective, acknowledging that influences in early life can predispose an individual to poor health in adulthood and later life (Blane, 2006). The SDOH framework further acknowledges psychosocial processes, recognizing the relationship between external stressors (e.g., financial issues) and internal responses (e.g., biological responses such as raised cortisol; Brunner & Marmot, 2006). Since the original report on the SDOH in 1999, a growing body of research evidence supports the SDOH framework, which has been used to facilitate changes in policy and practice aimed at reducing inequality and improving health outcomes (Marmot et al., 2020). However, progress in
addressing inequalities and improving the health of individuals and societies has been reported to be slow (Marmot et al., 2020).
The SDOH considers the context in which people live, work, and learn as having a major impact on health. Social and Community factors are one of the five components of the SDOH.
How does that component impact the health of an individual or community?
