Towards Health Equity in Connecticut: The Role of Social Inequality and the Impact of COVID-19, is a comprehensive new report scheduled for release in May or June 2020.
The report summarizes five broad social determinants of health and discusses how various groups of people are affected by their opportunities in each category. Each section begins with general comparisons of many groups across several indicators, and ends with an example of how those social circumstances relate to a specific health prospect. Throughout, the report also discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the social forces that influence health and well-being.
