Health Equity Approaches to Preventing Sexual and Intimate Partner Violence Session 2: Addressing Underlying Factors that Contribute to Safety and Violence


This web conference was open to CDC RPE and DELTA Impact recipients and sub recipients. 

The environments where people live, work, and play are shaped by underlying factors that influence health and health outcomes. These factors, or social determinants of health (SDOH), include access to and quality of education and health care, neighborhood environments and conditions, social and community contexts, and economic stability. SDOH are impacted by multiple forms of oppression such as racism, ableism, and sexism. Sexual and intimate partner violence prevention practitioners can advance health equity by incorporating an anti-oppression framework and SDOH throughout prevention strategies and approaches. Join PreventConnect to learn how prevention practitioners in Delaware and Rhode Island are addressing underlying factors to create more equitable, safe, and healthy communities.
