Last night at @INDOPACOM Defense Chiefs meeting, I spoke of how #COVID19 has put a spotlight on inequity in opportunities for health, and made the case to other world leaders and defense chiefs that health inequities are an international security threat.

That’s why I was pleased to announce that for the first time, @HHSGov’ Healthy People 2030 sets 10-year targets for objectives related to social determinants of health. I challenged other world leaders to make #socialdeterminants a defense priority.…
Social determinants of health include transportation, affordable housing, places to exercise, and access to healthy foods. It’s one thing tell people to make healthy choices. It’s another thing to realize the choices people make are dependent on the choices they actually have. Image

Bringing Human Rights to Mental Health Care: An Interview with @UNHumanRights Envvoy Dainius Pūras

#UnitedNations Special Rapporteur Dainius Pūras discusses his own journey as a #psychiatrist and the future of #rightsbased approaches to #mentalhealth.…
The families and children I met were actually my real teachers. They were teaching me about ethical #psychiatry. They were teaching me that if you take #humanrights out of psychiatry, then it becomes dangerous and toxic.
It’s not black and white. It’s not about denouncing the medical model, but we’ve identified huge asymmetries and power imbalances in the field. #Mentalhealth care has gone wrong for several reasons but drugs were announced as if they were more effective than other interventions.

1/ It is strange being an epidemiologist, liberal, scientist who feels like we are making mistakes with absolutism of shutdowns. (and being lumped with antivaxxers, Trump etc. by my own people)
Many people out of work→ anxiety & depression & social discord →
2/ →alcohol & risk behaviors, no healthcare, kids no school (no internet)=key #socialdeterminants of health.
Those w/ no #skininthegame seem to ignore and say it is about going out
We are talking about people dying—with any decision—so have the conversation honestly
3/ what do we need?
Minimize harms of #SocialDistancing to work & wellbeing
build #resilient society with universal basics
-fast $ payments when blocked from working
Pop studies of #COVID epi to know where it is before hospital testing identifies
(in 2021?)

We need to make sure everyone has the chance to grow up healthy and stay healthy. That's why we're awarding $3 million in grant funding for 13 partnerships addressing the social determinants of health. #SocialDeterminants #SDOH

For too long our health care system has focused on people only after they get sick. But we know what a difference healthy food, safe housing, and violence and substance use prevention can make in people's lives. #SocialDeterminants #SDOH Image
Today's grantees are leading service and health care providers and together we will expand their critical work addressing issues from chronic homelessness, to hunger, to prenatal care. #SocialDeterminants #SDOH

[THREAD] The U.S. spends more $$$ than any other country on health care, but gets worse health outcomes than similar countries.

We live shorter lives and have more disease burden. And the gap between the U.S. and other countries has grown.
Along with Jeffrey Selberg @PetersonCHealth, my @KaiserFamFound colleagues and I took a deep dive into the health system. We examined the last 25 years of health spending and outcomes in the U.S. vs similar countries. We look at dozens of indicators from a variety of data sources
U.S. health outcomes have improved, generally, over the past generation. In the past 25 years, life expectancy in the U.S. improved 4% and disease burden improved 12% (though both recently worsened a bit). Meanwhile, the share of our economy devoted to health increased by 40%
