what are the social factors that determine health in our society?

Posted by Flourish Itulua Abumere on June 24, 2013 at 4:15 AM

The social determinants of health are the circumstances in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. These circumstances are created by the circulation of money, power and resources at global, national and local levels. The social determinants of health are mostly to blame for health inequities, the inequitable and preventable differences in health status seen within and between countries according to the World Health Organization.

Now, if we are best informed of the social factors that can determine the status of our health, we can then work in the right part of getting a better health. Lets share some of our ideas and knowledge of the factors that can determine our health. The negatives and the positives.

I have 3 social factors that determine my health
1. My family: If I lost them an dead (I dont mean my sisters or brother rather I mean husband and kids)
2. My job: In PH, I cant imagine anyone loosing there job. I will develop high blood pressure and die
3. My car: This is now so so a necessity. One is now pron to short life without a car. Without a car, you have signed up for suffer in any metro city because our public transport are messed up here.

The practice of satanic worships, attending rituals, belonging to secret cults and terrorist group can determine your health. For instance, I have heard rumors that secret cult member drink and exchange their bloods. During this process, disease, germs, infections, viruses, bacterias can all be transferred. This will in turn reduce your life expectancy ratio. Same goes to terrorist, you can't get a healthy life style fighting and killing people. Your actions determine your health sincerely speaking.

Failure and drawback in any area of your life can determine your health status. All those living in areas where pollution takes place regularly can determine your health status

Divorce and separations is now a trending social factor that determines ones health today. In those day when marriage use to last forever, people leave healthier because they have peace of mind. But today with divorce on the high side and victims keep thinking of how to get to court, get a lawyer, get a new home, start a new life, one can hardly be healthy due to the stress, heart break, depression and panic involved in it. Besides matrimony is suppose to make a man and a woman have sex without fear of STD since there are no other partners but with broken homes, you are back to singlehood which can determine your health if not protective

Social determinants of health in a positive way are:
money, accommodation, good food, happiness, access to easy transportation, family values, love and the country you reside like (USA, Canada, UK) and clothing. Inequality in society brings forth bad health to some people from Low social class. Inequality is the negative effects of social determinants of health.

In as much as shelter and food is a major determinant of health, poverty is the most major determinant of health both in an individual level and as a nation. That is why there is a shorter life expectancy ratio in some countries and higher life expectancy ratio in other wealthy countries.

Health is life and when there is life there is hope. The only thing to determine my health in all sincerity is good food. I will die without food. When I eat, I can think, I can work and I can be healthy.

Shelter over my head can definitely determine my health status. If am homeless and exposed to dirty environment, I can quickly fall sick and fell so much uncomfortable.
