Determinants of health are factors that influence how likely we are to stay healthy or to become ill or injured. Many of the key drivers of health reside in our everyday living and working conditions—the circumstances in which we grow, live, work and age. These social determinants can strengthen or undermine the health of individuals and communities.
More reports and statistics on social determinants can be found under Men & women and Rural & remote Australians.
