Abstract
What determines the health of a population? Within our communities, there are significant differences and variations in the health status of individuals and groups. This 15 minute video is an exploration of these differences in health status that are associated with factors such as income, early child development and neighbourhood. The video features commentary from Vancouver Coastal Health staff, as well as stories from North Shore residents about how the social determinants of health impact their lives.

Notes
A four-hour documentary series arguing that "health and longevity are correlated with socioeconomic status, people of color face an additional health burden, and our health and well-being are tied to policies that promote economic and social justice. Each of the half-hour program segments, set in different racial/ethnic communities, provides a deeper exploration of the ways in which social conditions affect population health and how some communities are extending their lives by improving them" -- Container insert
