Ventres, Kravitz, and Dharamsi's article explores the connections among societal forces, social determinants, and health outcomes.
PEARLS+ organizes several key societal forces that influence social determinants and, in turn, shape health outcomes.
|L= Life circumstances|
|S= Social roles/social structures|
|+= Other force|
Examples of adverse determinants: classism, corruption, ecosystem degradation, gender discrimination, globalization, income inequality, migration, militarism, poverty, racism, social isolation, and violence.
Societal forces influence social determinants and, in turn, shape health outcomes in morbidity and mortality across categories (including, among others, income, gender, ethnicity, geography, and education) in both domestic and international settings.
