Wider Determinants of Health Profiles


The aim of this profile, launched in March 2017, is to provide the public health system with intelligence regarding the wider determinants of health to help improve population health and reduce health inequalities. This Fingertips profile aims to:

  • provide a set of indicators which describe a range of wider determinants of health and enable a comparison of these factors between areas
  • highlight relationships between wider determinants and other risk factors and health outcomes
  • provide, where possible, links to best practice in tackling wider determinants. This may take the form of best practice, case studies, interventions, guidance, or links to other tools.
