Housing as an Intermediary Determinant of Health and Points of Intervention to Reduce Disparities

Housing is where our economic, social, and personal lives come together. In this webinar, Dr. Angela Aidala and Dr. Robert Fullilove discuss housing as an intermediary social determinant of health and health equity. Fundamental determinants of health are macro-level cultural and economic policies, practices and dynamics that affect the socioeconomic position of individuals, groups and communities. These determinants operate directly on us through more proximal ‘intermediary’ determinants like housing to shape health outcomes. Housing links upstream fundamental determinants of health to the more immediate physical and social environments in which we live our lives.

By participating in this webinar, individuals will be able to:
• Understand the importance of housing and housing systems as intermediary determinants of health.
• Identify opportunities for public health policy and programmatic points of action in housing and housing systems to improve individual and community health.
• Learn from cross-sectoral initiatives involving local and state health departments that have targeted housing and residential environments as strategic points of intervention.
