Culture Well

WWG is in a partnership with One Health Organisation and Asthma Australia to unpack the social determinants of health impacting on development of chronic disease.  As the first pilot site for this national project we are focusing on the social determinants of health, not on disease treatment — research shows that healthcare contributes only 20% of our health outcomes. Lifestyle factors make up 30%, whilst socio-economic determinants of health create 40% of our health. The final 10% is made up of environmental and genetic factors. We are systems mapping with three CALD communities to identify the key enablers and obstacles to good health. We have collected data from local Arabic speaking, Samoan and Vietnamese communities which ‘map’ the social determinants that create the biggest barriers to their health and wellbeing.
