Framework for building primary care capacity to address the social determinants of health

This article provides a framework that can assist every large primary care organization in establishing a committee dedicated to the Social Determinants of Health (SDoH), which could help build a network across Canada to share lessons learned and support joint advocacy. The objective of the program discussed in the article is to support directly addressing the SDoH. St Michael’s Hospital Academic Family Health Team (FHT) in Toronto, Ontario, developed the SDoH Committee.
