|Welcome to Science Clips, CDC's weekly digest! |
Each Tuesday, to enhance awareness of emerging scientific knowledge, selected science clips will be posted here for the public health community. The focus is applied public health research and prevention science that has the capacity to improve health now.
This year, the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention's Office of Health Equity (OHE) is celebrating their 10th anniversary. To celebrate this occasion, OHE is hosting a one-day event on November 7th, themed: From Theory to Action, Applying the Social Determinants of Health to Public Health Practice. The event will feature Dr. Howard Koh, Assistant Secretary for Health, U.S Department of Health and Human Services, and Professor Sir Michael Marmot, former Chair of the WHO Commission on Social Determinants of Health and Director of the University College London Institute of Health Equity. To find out more about the 10th anniversary event, visit the OHE 10th Anniversary intranet page.
This special issue of Science Clips features a special Public Health Reports (PHR) supplement entitled Applying Social Determinants of Health to Public Health Practice. It focuses on the more comprehensive public health approach that considers social determinants of health (SDH) to help improve health, address health inequities and accelerate health impact. The articles featured in the supplement provide perspective on the application of SDH, and describe experiences integrating and implementing SDH into public health programs and research.
Drs. Hazel D. Dean and Kim M. Williams, both from CDC, are guest editors for this special supplement along with Dr. Kevin Fenton, formerly of CDC and now of Public Health England. Along with their guest editorial, Drs. Dean and Fenton give an overview on the progress made incorporating SDH approaches into CDC's HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB prevention programs in Integrating a Social Determinants of Health Practice: A Five Year Perspective of Actions Implemented by CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention. Writing for this PHR supplement, Drs. Sadana and Blas from the World Health Organization examine What Can Public Health Programs Do to Improve Health Equity? The piece on Addressing the Social Determinant of Health through the Alameda County, California, Place Matters Policy Initiative is an outstanding case study on community engagement to address SDH.
This is the third and final supplement in a series of Public Health Reports Supplements on SDH published by NCHHSTP. The previous PHR supplements included Addressing Social Determinants of Health in the Prevention and Control of HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, Sexually Transmitted Infections and Tuberculosis, and Data Systems and Social Determinants of Health.
