Societal determinants of health inequalities
Political economy framework (309)
-Distribution of power and economic & social resources. Shapes health
-Suggestion to Increase economic output as a solution to discrepancies in health outcomes in different
countries?
-Some countries with widely differing incomes per capita had life expectancies that are very
similar. Clearly income per capita is not explaining life expectancy, there is no automatic
relationship.
-might be a result of social welfare states and income redistributions, rather than
income. Example, Cuba
-Suggestion to increase health spending?
-suggestion to examine societal determinants of health rather than medical care spending or income per
capita?
Individual experience (312-13)
-genetic conditions (outcomes socially mediated). Enormous investments and hopes to address patterns
of disease within populations and across populations. This will not happen, because even with genetic
variation, other social and environmental determinants are not taken into account in how a genetic
disorder evolves and develops.
-personal agency and decisions

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
