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.

Healthy and safe community environments include those with clean air and water, affordable and secure housing, sustainable and economically vital neighbourhoods, and supportive structures (e.g., violence-free places to be active).
