Social determinants of health
Structural violence refers to the often invisible patterns of inequality that lead to exclusion and lack of opportunity. These patterns are often composed of ideologies, stigmas or language around gender, race, class, and other markers of social identity. Structural forms of violence are often ‘normalized’ and embedded in the daily reality of people affected by it. Discussions of structural violence are important and complex because they involve accounting for the individual experience while seeking to understand those experiences within the broader social, structural, cultural, and historical contexts in which they occur.
