Research Center for Social Factors Affecting Health
Research Center for Social Factors Affecting the Health was established in 2013 in Hamadan University of Medical Sciences. This center welcomes the collaboration with other organizations, research centers, and people interested in researching health promotion and promoting factors.
In today’s world, health has a broader
perspective, and it is essential to focus on health determinants. Each of these
determinants, by themselves or through the impact on each other, greatly
affects the health status and causes inequities in their health status. These
determinants such as inheritance, lifestyle, environment, socioeconomic status,
etc. have a significant impact on health and its consequences, including
quality of life.
In general, it can be concluded that the
conditions in which people grow, live and work, and the age of people all
affect their health status. Inequality in this situation leads to inequalities
of health. Fortunately, the overwhelming majority of these inequalities in
health, both within and between countries, can be avoided. Success in improving
health and reducing injustices depends on the serious consideration of its
underlying social causes. Technical solutions within the health sector are also
very important, but it should be noted that these solutions are not enough.
Considering the determinants of health also require more extensive work and
more sustainable measures.
In this regard, in order to expand the research
and present scientific and practical solutions to health and medical this
center established in Hamadan University of Medical Sciences to increase the
