America’s Health Rankings® Health of Women and Children Report was built upon the WHO definition of health:
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
The model reflects that determinants of health directly influence health outcomes. A health outcomes category and four categories of health determinants are included in the model: behaviors, community & environment, policy, and clinical care. This report applies the America’s Health Rankings model of health to the health of women of reproductive age, infants, and children.
