Social and Cultural Determinants of Health: Chronic Disease and Well-Being in India and Canada
Local (e.g., Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion) and global (e.g., WHO) health organizations are increasingly emphasizing the importance of prevention of chronic disease. Nonetheless, very little research addresses the influence of social determinants on chronic disease in South Asians, and even less on how that influence changes as a function of culture and environment. By focusing on social and lifestyle predictors, and their interaction with cultural and environmental variables, we will be able to provide guidelines for targeted health promotion and prevention campaigns in both Canada and India.
