Foundations of Health

Basic human and social needs must be met for individuals and families to be their healthiest. These social determinants of health include factors such as socioeconomic status, education, neighborhood and physical environment, employment, social support networks, and access to health care. Providence invests in addressing these social conditions to improve health and well-being and to reduce longstanding inequities in health care. Our report highlights:

  • Increasing food security
  • Housing solutions that reduce homelessness
  • Creating educational pathways for children and adults
  • Improving health equity and addressing systemic injustice
