Please join Aligning for Health (AFH), Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) and a bipartisan panel of Congressional staff on December 15th for a virtual
briefing that will highlight opportunities in the 117th Congress to support effective and innovative approaches to social determinants of health.
Social Determinants of Health (SDOHs) are the social and economic conditions – such as those in housing, employment, food security, and education
– that have a major influence on individual and community health. SDOHs are receiving increased attention from insurance companies, hospitals,
healthcare systems, and governmental agencies interested in improving health outcomes and controlling costs. Now more than ever, centering
cross-sector, public health strategies and funding can build strong foundations for effective, long-term solutions to improve health and potentially
drive down health care costs. Some recent legislation that cover some of these issues include the Social Determinants Accelerator Act of 2019
(H.R. 4004/ S. 2986) and the Improving Social Determinants of Health Act of 2020 (H.R. 6561/S. 4440).
