Primer to Action: Social Determinants of Health

Publication Date: 
March, 2007

A revised version of the “Primer to Action” is now available.

This report is a resource for health professionals, lay workers, volunteers and activists to explore how the social determinants impact chronic disease. It is intended to help you navigate through barriers in your organization or group and offer concrete ‘primers’ to get you going with action to increase access to the social determinants for yourself, your family, and those with whom you work. We will regularly update the information, and listen closely to your feedback.

This resource is a collaborative project of the Ontario Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance, Ontario Prevention Clearinghouse and the Canadian Cancer Society – Ontario Division. It draws upon the skill and expertise of numerous health, social, and education professionals and organizations.
