Videos: Health
The health of populations - individuals, their families and communities - is determined by the complex interaction of many factors - social, political, economic, legal, cultural, historical and biomedical. Of these determinants of health, income has long been recognized as one of the most important. People with higher incomes and higher socio-economic statuses tend to live longer, have lower rates of illness and injury, and are more likely to report that they have good or excellent health. People living in poverty have a lower life expectancy and higher rates of illness across a wide spectrum of diseases. Poor health predisposes individuals and families to homelessness and homelessness exposes individuals and families to particular health problems.
