Social determinants of health: geographic location, socioeconomic status, education and literacy, mental health, language, and culture. These determinants can create barriers to compliance and lead to health inequities. "The social determinants of health describe the phenomenon of how social constructs can also impact health in ways that may be unfair or unjust for certain groups within a population (Solar & Irwin, 2010)."
