報告概要 :
Applying sociological theory in tandem with a social determinants of health perspective, this lecture will discuss multiple pathways through which the uneven distribution of power and resources intersect with discrimination and other forms of marginalization to create social disadvantage and health inequities. Social disadvantage, which is politically and socially determined, is further exacerbated during and in the aftermath of public health crises, most recently and dramatically in the case of Covid-19. It is well documented, for example, that compared to their share of the total population, the percentage of COVID-19 infections was disproportionately higher among working class and marginalized groups in communities around the world. Traditional risk factor epidemiology methodologically   transmutes the “context” — socio-economic position and access to resources — into attributes of individuals, resulting in studies that ignore or underrepresent the fundamental role of structural factors in health and wellbeing. Highlights   from studies conducted in the United States together with examples from other countries will be presented to illustrate the central role of the social determinants of health in Covid-related beliefs, practices, and outcomes.
