The US Preventive Services Task Force is working on primary care-based recommendations to combat the effects of social determinants of health.

The position paper was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

According to Healio, USPSTF will focus on modifiable factors, such as food insecurity or transportation. Nonmodifiable factors may serve a role in screening but are not appropriate intervention targets.
