The social determinants of health—the social, environmental, infrastructural, political, cultural, and educational conditions that exist where people live—have a profound impact on the health of populations in those places. The centers below focus on the health and social determinants of populations, addressing issues of equity, human rights, and access. They promote interdisciplinary understanding of population health metrics and the ways in which demographic trends intersect with social and economic development across the globe, as well as the translation of scholarship into policy and practice in government and civil society.
