Answer:

Hi Atharva,

  • Health is affected not because of a single factor, but due to the interaction of many different factors such as personal, social, economic and environmental factors.
  • The interactions among these factors ultimately decide the health of an individual.
  • Social and economic factors such as income levels, educational levels, access to housing, sanitation, and nutritional status in a society determine the health of an individual.
