A five-minute YouTube video on the importance of community and the social determinants of health has been produced by the Sudbury and District Health Unit. The video titled, “Let’s Start a Conversation About Health…and Not Talk About Health Care At All” addresses the significance of income and the importance of education, employment, housing and social supports to the health of individuals.
The video points out that health depends on many socially determined factors, and that increased investment solely in the health care system only bandaids the real problems. A more proactive and innovative approach that enhances public policy around community prosperity is required for effective, sustainable solutions.
