Social Determinants of health (SDOH) impact every human’s quality of life. These include things that are in their environments such as where they live, work, worship, and play. Things such as their economic stability, access to education, access to healthcare, their neighborhood, and their social circle and community will all effect their health outcomes (WHO, 2021). SDOH contributes to disease by hindering a healthy environment such as unsafe housing, transportation, or an unsafe neighborhood. Lack of access to nutritional foods and physical activities can also lead to disease (Khalloug, Schellhammer, 2021).

To have a good health promotion plan one must understand how the chain of infection works and how it is broken. Humans and animals are very common reservoirs for infection. By encouraging a person infected to quarantine we can prevent spread of an infection. This is the best way to break the cycle of infection. Washing hands, covering coughs and sneezes, and practicing good hygiene can also help to decrease infection spread and break the chain of infection (GCU, 2018).
