“To a large extent, factors such as where we live, the state of our environment, genetics, our income and education level, and our relationships with friends and family all have considerable impacts on health, whereas the more commonly considered factors such as access and use of healthcare services often have less of an impact” (World Health Organization, 2015).

Reflect on the statement above both from individual and public health views. Do you agree? Why or why not? Considering the history, philosophy and values in public health, how does this influence your approach to improving health of the population? Building on the learning resources and your own research, what recommendations would you have for improving equality and equity in healthcare?
