Community Health Indicators
Social Determinants of Health & Health Equity Framework:
The Curry County CHIP Coalition recognizes that multiple factors in a community impact the health of individuals, families and communities. These are often called the Social Determinants of Health. The term Social Determinants of Health is defined by the World Health Organization as “the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. These circumstances are shaped by the distribution of money, power and resources.”
The social determinants of health influence health inequities. Health inequities are the avoidable, unfair, and unjust differences in health status seen within and between individuals and communities.
