Social Determinants of Child Health: Concepts and Measures for Future Research

Social Determinants of Child Health: Concepts and Measures for Future Research | Estudios de futuro | Scoop.it

by Kelli Komro, Scott Burris, Alexander C Wagenaar

"..... it is, however, the sort of investment required to move from social determinants frameworks to practical policy success.

Our perspective is an optimistic one. "Social determinants" have been reified in their complexity. Eating, drinking, smoking, – even driving – are actually all downstream manifestations of complex social, psychological and biological interactions, and yet, science has managed to identify policies that effectively reduce harmful behavior and outcomes. With the proper investment of resources and talent, we can do the same with social determinants. "
