Social Determinants of Health

CPSTF conducts systematic reviews of intervention approaches that modify social determinants of health (SDOH) to advance health equity. To date, CPSTF has issued findings for SDOH interventions related to education, housing, and nutrition. In 2020, they identified SDOH as one of nine CPSTF priority topics.

In 2022, the name for this topic area changed from Health Equity to Social Determinants of Health.
