Communities

Many factors combine together to affect the health of individuals and communities. Whether people are healthy or not, is determined by their circumstances and environment.

To a large extent, factors such as where we live, the state of our environment, genetics, our income and education level, and our relationships with friends and family all have considerable impacts on health, whereas the more commonly considered factors such as access and use of health care services often have less of an impact.
