2SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTHDescriptionThe current assignment focuses upon the social determinants of health within theDandenong community of the Victoria region of Australia. The region shelters a huge number ofimmigrants who has been suffering from adverse health issues lately. The current assignmentfocuses upon the common perils faced within the community and the impact of the socialdeterminants upon the same. As per my analysis, some of the common health perils which aredominant within the community are drug addiction, mental health issues and low rates of freshfruits or vegetable intake.The current assignment focuses upon the nutritional deficits faced within the communitydue to not eating sufficient fruits and vegetable. As per the reports and data provided by Abs(2017), nearly one in five Australian youths aged 15 and above experienced malnutrition. In2008 alone 15.5% of greater Dandenong experienced high levels of nutritional deficits comparedto the Victorian residents at 11.4% (Gordon, 2017).Feelings:Impact of the social determinants upon the health of the populationThere are a number of profound effects of social determinants on the health of an individual andcommunity. Some of the social determinants of health which have been taken into considerationby me are the cultural, socio-economic and the environmental conditions. As commented byAdleret al. (2016), some of these factors have adverse effect in shaping the lifestyle and healthapproaches within a community.
