Social Determinants of Health (SDOH)

The purpose of this assignment is to create a professional email that would be sent to a healthcare provider outside of your discipline.
Read the Instructional Materials on Social Determinants of Health (SDOH)- see below.
Using the information in the readings as well as any information you find on your own, create an email that identifies the important SDOH in the country you selected in Module I (Human Immunodeficiency Virus Endemic in Kenya in pregnant women).
You can direct the email to any healthcare provider that is NOT a nurse. Make sure the discipline of the healthcare provider is clear in the email. You do not know whether the healthcare professional is or is not aware of the social determinants of health literature. Lacking this information means that the email must provide information without offending the individual.
Address the following items:
Explain to the healthcare professional the link between the concept of health status and social determinants of health.
Identify which social determinants of health are relevant to the chosen country/community (Kenya). Support your choices with scholarly references.
Identify which global health indicators are useful in understanding the chosen health issue (Human Immunodeficiency Virus Endemic in Kenya, in pregnant women). If none of the key health indicators are applicable to the health issue, explain why. Support the response.
While it is unlikely that you would use reference citations in an email, a minimum of two (2) references must be included in this email.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. (2018). Social determinants of health: Know what affects health. (2020). Social determinants of health.
World Health Organization. (2020). Social determinants of health.
