The following definitions are from
OAR 141-414-3735, effective January 2020.
Social determinants of health and equity (SDOH-E) encompasses three terms:
social determinants of health refer to the social, economic and environmental conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age, and are shaped by the social determinants of equity. These conditions significantly impact length and quality of life and contribute to health inequities.
social determinants of equity refer to systemic or structural factors that shape the distribution of the social determinants of health in communities.
Health-related social needs refer to an individual’s social and economic barriers to health, such as housing instability or food insecurity.
SDOH-E initiatives may involve interventions that occur outside a clinical setting, and may pursue mechanisms of change including:
- Community-level interventions that directly address social determinants of health or social determinants of equity; and
- Interventions to address individual health-related social needs.
SDOH-E partner is a single organization, local government, one or more of the federally recognized Oregon tribal governments, the Urban Indian Health Program, or a collaborative, that delivers SDOH-E related services or programs and/or supports policy and systems change within a CCO’s service area.
