Social Determinants of Health

Achieving health equity requires innovative solutions that address the social determinants of health. Health funders are engaged in a broad range of efforts that target the social, economic, and environmental factors that shape health. These include upstream factors such as structural racism, employment, education, housing, and neighborhood conditions. GIH programming focuses on the multiple pathways and approaches foundations are investing in to tackle the root causes of health inequity.
