Population Health & Disease Prevention

About Us

Cycle of the social determinants of healthPopulation health is an approach that focuses on the interrelated and complex factors that influence the health of a population over the course of a lifetime.

It includes the social determinants of health (SDOH) which are the conditions in the environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.
