In order to address health equity, it is important to acknowledge the factors that create inequitable health outcomes, such as socioeconomic factors and other inequalities related to race and gender. Although individual responsibility and personal health behaviors have an impact on health outcomes, understanding how the social determinants of health (e.g., education, housing, employment, transportation) play a significant role in both health behaviors and health outcomes is important when attempting to achieve health equity for all Missourians.
For the purpose of this report, health equity will be discussed through the examination of Missouri's food system, including how social determinants of health impact food security and food access, as well as the connection between disparities in health outcomes and an inequitable food system.
