Education

Education is an important social determinant of health. For the population as a whole, greater levels of education help to create wealthier economies. However the benefits of education go far beyond economic ones. Education can impact positively on levels of social engagement, an important factor in generating more cohesive, safer and healthier societies.

At an individual level, the knowledge, personal and social skills provided through education can better equip individuals to access and use information and services to maintain and improve their own and their family’s health.
