Social determinants of health: “The social determinants of health are the circumstances in which people are born, grow up, live, work, and age, as well as the systems put in place to deal with illness.

The Context of the Book, “My name is not easy,” in Program Planning
The plot of the book begins with Bunna, Luke, and Isaac going to the Sacred Heart School. Luke does not want to use his real name that he believes would be difficult for the white children and teachers to pronounce. Luke also lost his two brothers because Isaac was sent away to Texas while Bunna was dead in a plane crush as he went back for summer holiday in his village. The book is about the social relations and interactions of the American and Eskimo children attending school in a Catholic high school in the early 1960s. The book touches on social hatred and racism within the native cultures in America. This is a significant public health issue because it may impact on the ability of some people to access good health services. Most of the children in the school come from poor backgrounds and broken homes while others have been abandoned by their parents. Some of the children bully their colleagues before they realize they have many things in common (Edwardson, 2011). These are some of the public health issues that can be drawn in the book. This paper discusses important concepts in the book and links them to public health issues and the design of a public health program.
