Dimension 3


Social Dimension

Health of communities is strictly connected to social issues and especially climate justice on a broader sense. We cannot thing one healthy societies if they are not just and equal.
Social factors could include cultural, religious, and educational factors. Negative social factors could include corruption, prejudice, bigotry, racism, anti-Semitism, misogyny, xenophobia and other factors adversely affecting diversity, equity, inclusion, justice, and health. These factors can have a strong impact on the comprehensive state of health of a community. The right to health is also a fundamental human right recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), and the International Convention for Economic and Social Rights (ICESR). Since then, many other frameworks address the right to health including the SDGs. All Member States have ratified at least one treaty recognizing health as a human right.
One health need indeed to address health as a fundamental human right and consider also social factors especially towards more vulnerable categories.
