Social Determinants of Health Research Center (SDHRC)

Created Date : Monday, April 2, 2018   Update Date : Wednesday, January 1, 2020   


The social determinants of health affect more than 50% of the illnesses, diseases and deaths in the world. According to the available evidence, the main health inequities are the result of the effects and non-symmetrical consequences of these social factors on the health of the people. Today, health outlooks have become more widespread and have become a special focus on determinants of non-medical health.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, as one of the leading countries in the field of combating the destructive effects of these social determinants of health since 2006, has started the work of the Commission on Social ِDeterminants of Health at the World Health Organization (WHO), establishing the Secretariat of the Social Determinants of Health at the Ministry of Health and Medical Education. Also, in 2011, the net of research on social determinants of health has been approved.

The center aims to step up the community's health by collaborating with all interested individuals inside and outside the Saveh University of Medical Sciences by continuously identifying health indicators and inequities in health through community participation.
