The COVID-19 pandemic reinforces the importance of the social determinants of health

It has been known since the mid 1850s that the primary factors shaping health are living and working conditions. Canada has produced many documents about these social determinants of health but provides a discouraging portrait concerning their quality and equitable distribution. The COVID-19 pandemic has served to reinforce these understandings yet the prospect of government action on these issues remains uncertain.
