Individual Factors
Individual factors: concern a person’s attitudes, skills, and behaviors, which are shaped by their personal experiences, including their relationships with others and access to opportunities, often driven by systems of power.
Social determinants of health, such as poverty, unequal access to health care, lack of education, stigma, and racism shape individual factors and contribute to health inequities. Healthy childhood development of social and emotional skills is associated with better mental and physical health outcomes, life satisfaction, and life expectancy in adulthood.
