NCCDPHP’s Approach to Social Determinants of Health
At CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), our work is deeply rooted in advancing health equity by addressing social determinants of health (SDOH) to reduce barriers and promote health and wellness for all.
Breaking down barriers to health equity by addressing SDOH remains NCCDPHP’s top priority. NCCDPHP aims to address the following five social determinants of health that are strongly tied to chronic disease conditions and communities that are most affected:
Addressing SDOH to achieve health equity requires thoughtful collaboration across sectors. NCCDPHP is uniquely positioned to:
Fund wide-reaching approaches and evidence-based programs that can be expanded in many communities to advance health equity.
Convene partners from different sectors, such as education, housing, health care, community development, or transportation, to expand proven programs that address SDOH.
