State Action: Social Determinants of Health

Many factors beyond clinical care influence a person’s health, including their social, economic, and environmental circumstances. States have started to target these social determinants of health at the population level in various ways, such as building state infrastructure to give health care providers an incentive to invest in disease prevention and community health; incorporating social needs into health initiatives; and reducing health disparities in vulnerable communities. States are tackling social determinants with policies on housing instability, food insecurity, transportation, family and social supports, and interpersonal violence.
