Vulnerable Populations in our Own Communities

Shi, Stevens, Faed, & Tsai (2008) maintain that an individual’s personal surroundings play a role their access to material and social resources essential to wellbeing, which in turn play a role in their level of vulnerability and risk of negative outcomes. Their contention is that the lack of access to these resources may reduce the level of health-promoting behaviors while increasing the incidence of risk behaviors (2008), which in turn increase risk exposures and vulnerability to poor health outcomes.
