Social determinants of health in Pakistan: the glass is more than half empty

Abstract

Discussion on the social determinants of health is an entry into the context within which health outcomes can be located. Sectors that affect health outcomes are many, though many of them are not considered in discussions on the determinants of health. Ideally, the domains that need to be reviewed and analysed, and linked to health outcomes, should include: transport; livelihood; labour; agriculture (food security); politics; environment; law; and gender in terms of power relations and not merely sex disaggregation.
