Social Determinants of Health: Economic Stability 

Economic stability is identified as a pillar of the social determinants of health by the Healthy People 2020 campaign. In this course, you will learn that economic stability represents an individual’s ability to access much needed resources, such as food, adequate housing, and necessary healthcare. Income and health are strongly, positively correlated (Kansas Department of Health and Environment, 2015). Each of the critical components of economic stability, which comprise poverty, employment, food security, and housing stability, are linked to individual health outcomes.
