How can we make a difference? According to the World Health Organization; the determinants that make people healthy include:

  • Income and social status – higher income and social status are linked to better health. The greater the gap between the richest and poorest people, the greater the differences in health.
  • Education – low education levels are linked with poor health, more stress and lower self-confidence.
  • Social support networks – greater support from families, friends and communities is linked to better health.1
