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.
