We will strive to enable every individual to achieve their full health potential and not to be affected by any socially determined disadvantageous circumstance.
To measure the problem, expand our knowledge base of various social determinants that come in the way of individual’s health in our study area.
Health is defined as “A state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely absence of disease or infirmity” – WHO. Social factors that determine health include, but are not limited to factors like poverty, ignorance, pollution, contaminated drinking water, and food access. All these factors have channeled our efforts towards building a research center that would allow physicians, researchers, health professionals, and students to come together and learn about how they can improve the health of their community and combat these types of “social determinants”. With this idea, we envisioned developing a “Centre of Excellence for Social Determinants of Health”.
