Social inclusion is increasingly being recognized as a social determinant of health. There is general understanding that a socially inclusive society is one where all people feel valued, have their differences and rights are respected, and their basic needs are met. Social connections, access to different forms of social capital, and being civically engaged all reflect dimensions of being socially included and have been associated with positive mental and physical health and well-being.
