Challenging Inequities in Health: From Ethics to Action

Challenging Inequities in Health: From Ethics to Action

The New York City-based Rockefeller Foundation has published the results of its Global Health Equity Initiative (GHEI). Using case studies from Bangladesh, Chile, China, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Sweden, Tanzania, the United Kingdom, the U.S., and Vietnam, the final report, Challenging Inequities in Health: From Ethics to Action, asks and offers answers to the following questions: How do we measure health inequalities? What are the social origins of health inequalities? How does access to health care fit into health equity? And, what can be done?
