Abstract:
When one views the state of health among the general population in a given society, large discrepancies among various segments become strikingly apparent. These disparities are due in great part to myriad social and economic factors, including unequal access to economic resources, education, social support systems, and adequate living conditions. In an attempt to bridge these gaps, many countries and communities are seeking to implement new and innovative programs and policies.

This session will explore the social and economic determinants of the public’s health in marginalized and under-served communities around the world. Areas of focus will include the impact of housing, transportation, poverty, and environment on health; the relationship between income and health status; and ways to develop stronger public leadership in health matters. Particular consideration will be given to community models that have successfully dealt with issues concerning the accessibility of maternal and child health services for under-served communities, both in rural and urban settings; family planning programs; the improvement of health education; and more effective health care services.
