Social Drivers of Health (SDoH)

The World Health Organization describes SDoH as non-medical factors that influence health outcomes. These factors account for 30%-55% of health outcomes and include income, work-life conditions, education, food security, housing and community conditions, access to transportation, and societal inclusion and non-discrimination.1

According to Healthy People 20302, SDoH are grouped into five domains: 

  • Economic stability
  • Education access and quality
  • Healthcare access and quality
  • Neighborhood and built environment
  • Social and community context
