Present report is about different casescenarios that covers the effort of socio-economic influences on health. Further, it includesdifferent models and various factors which are involved in health promotion. Lastly, it alsoincludes developing promotional campaign in order to meet specific objectives. TASK 11.1 Effects of socio-economic influences on healthSocio-economic can be determined as a board term which is used to determine variousfactors like education, income, occupation, etc. (Edelman, Mandle and Kudzma, 2013). In thiscontext, there are many other factors which affect the health such as unemployment, lifestylechoices, access to information and discrimination. When people will be unemployed, then theywill not be having enough money to take care of their well-being. When people get caught withany kind of diseases, then they will not be able to spend effectively on their diseases. Similarly,when people of the society do not possess proper information related to their health, then theywill not take precautions with the help of which they will be able to save themselves fromdiseases. Moreover, different people have different lifestyle. There will be people who would behaving hygienic food which includes fruits but on the other hand there would be people who maynot be having daily meals (Mendes, Plaza and Wallerstein, 2014). This kind of lifestyle affectsindividual health. Further, there will be people who would be discriminated for the others.Because of this kind of situation, these types of people fail in getting proper treatments and dueto lack of information; they fail to maintain their health. Income also plays vital role as peoplewith high earning take proper precautions and maintain their diet.

In addition to this, the gap between the two was increasing. Similarly,Acheson Report which was published in 1998 demonstrated the existence of disparities related tohealth and relationship among different social classes. Further, this report stated that even themortality rate is low, upper social class may faces rapid mortality decline (Chavez, Perez andWilhite, 2015). Moreover, government conducts various surveys like census in which theycalculate the members in each family. In this context, according to a survey done by Census, itwas found that there are 169.3 million people around the world who died because of cancerevery year. It is very important to spread awareness among people regarding the issues whicharise because of smoking. Similarly, there are many other diseases which cause inequality inhealth. It is very important for schools to provide adequate information related to students so thatthey understand the proper way through which they can save themselves from diseases (Kordaand Itani, 2013). 1.3 Barriers to access HealthcareThere are many barriers in accessing healthcare, among which one of the main reasons islack of resources.
