Social Determinants of Health

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and inhuman….”  –Martin Luther King Jr., March 1966 

How long you live and how healthy you are depend in part on your race or ethnicity, your income, and even your ZIP code. In New York City, East Harlem residents live an average of 71 years, while those a few blocks away in the Upper East Side live to almost 90. 

American health disparities reflect both current and historical inequalities. Systemic racism, environmental injustice, and economic disenfranchisement mean that health and longevity aren’t equally obtainable for everyone.

IAPHS believes that with interdisciplinary population health research and evidence-based policy, we can reduce disparities and improve health for everyone.
