Social epidemiology research has provided persuasive evidence of the link between the social environment - especially socioeconomic status - and health outcomes, but has failed to identify underlying mechanisms that might account for the association.
The research may have been limited to date by its reliance on traditional epidemiologival methods that emphasize a search for specific causal factor-disease relationships.
It is time to take the research evidence and recast it to find practical solutions.
We argue that the human development perspective supplies a framework for understanding the critical interaction between elements of social environment and health.
