Policy Implications:
Many of our analyses show relationships between determinants and outcomes, but the pathway linking cause and effect is not always obvious. No single method in assessing the determinants of health can tell the entire picture.
Recommendations and/or Key Finding:
Anyone who wants to improve the health od the population needs to take a more systematic analytical approach to fully understand the relationships between the DOH and other health ehaviours and outcomes, and combine this with findings from the research literature.
