Today, women`s social health has become an important and critical issue. Social health is the reflection of society`s conditions and it is derived from multiple social factors. Intervention in these factors is beyond the medical profession and sociologists are required in this field. On the other hand, trust has become a vital topic in human communities in the present era. Considering the effect of trust on social health, this paper aims to study the relationship between social trust and women`s social health in Yazd, Iran. The survey study was performed and as many as 288 females were chosen through proportionate cluster sampling (PPS). Findings indicate that social trust and its dimensions are found to have significant and direct relationship with social health and different dimensions of social trust are able to determine 23% of social health variance. According to standardized Beta coefficients, reliability on environment (β= 0.22), interpersonal trust (β= 0.21), generalized trust (β= 0.18), and institutional trust (β= 0.12) have the highest contribution to determine social health. In addition, modeling results of structural equations showed that social trust rise leads to social health increase.
