Social Determinants in the US South

In the poorest states in the US with the worst health outcomes, the Trump Administration’s plan to end HIV by 2030 could create new opportunities—particularly among African Americans most affected.
Courtenay Sprague of the University of Massachusetts and co-authors, in a study published in Global Public Health, make the case that attention to social determinants of health is an essential prerequisite for a refreshed effort to succeed.

They collected qualitative evidence in Mississippi documenting how social determinants of health and health inequities shaped the experience of socially marginalized HIV-positive people in the US South, which could inform and improve health policy and clinical practice.
