This unit is part of the Family, Society and Health major sequence in H300 Bachelor of Health Sciences (unit set code MJ-H000002)
One of the critical determinants of health in society is socioeconomic status (SES). This unit will explore the link between SES and health from individual and population perspectives. It will explore the way social processes interact with health and consider the latest research on the social gradient. Issues such as gender, poverty and affluence, social exclusion, inequalities in health, and inequity will be considered against issues across the life course (access and expectation) as well as the role of education and information. The role of political and social institutions (including the household) in creating supportive environments will be considered.
