The social determinants of health related to the increased prevalence and risk of diabetes among South Asians in Canada
MetadataShow full item record
There continues to be a high prevalence and risk for diabetes, especially type 2 diabetes (T2D) among South Asians in Canada compared to the general population. Majority of current research continues to take biomedical and behavioural approaches to understanding diabetes among South Asians. These approaches overlook the significance of how living and working conditions, referred to as the social determinants of health (SDH), influence diabetes risk, as well as the overall management of diabetes among South Asians. Therefore, this major project explores the most significant SDH related to the increased prevalence and risk of diabetes among South Asians in Canada.
