The social and economic determinants of health such as income, employment, education and environment can lead to inequalities in health. Health inequalities are differences between people and/or communities that are a result of social, geographical, biological or other factors. These differences have a huge impact on people and communities as they mean that people experience poorer health and shorter lives.
