Youths who are negatively affected by social determinants of health suffer adverse effects like increased risks of chronic health conditions and mental health issues. Part 2 of this series describes the adverse effects social determinants of health can have on vulnerable children around the world. The impact of social determinants such as racism, discrimination, poverty, and limited access to care can lead to adverse effects such as poor mental health, diabetes, heart disease, substance abuse, complications during childbirth, suicide, and unexpected death. This collection describes the ways in which these social determinants can produce negative outcomes for children in the present and future.
The digital Pediatric Collection on Social Determinants of Health is available at collections.aap.org, and is updated continually. Access to digital Pediatric Collections articles varies based on your subscription status.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ Doody's 4 Star Review
"This book tackles the hard issues, effectively uses the influence of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and takes a leadership position to problem solve, such as exposing flawed mechanisms like the racial differences in postoperative outcomes in apparently healthy African American children. In summary, this is a timely and excellent collection of articles."
