Agency, Belonging & Health

ONGOING

A look at the medical evidence to see whether having agency (A) and belonging (B) can change (C) the odds on health

Reports

Through 2020 and 2021, I am exploring the medical literature to understand whether having agency and a sense of belonging make good health more likely, and if so, how. The working hypothesis is that given that health is largely a consequence of place, and given that places are created through policies and systems, change is more likely where people and communities have agency, and that this agency is stronger where people also have a sense of belonging.
