Abstract / Description of output

Health inequalities are systematic, socially produced and unfair: systematic because the differences in health outcomes are not randomly distributed but rather show a consistent pattern across the socio-economic spectrum; socially produced because no Law of Nature decrees that the poor should endure greater ill health and premature mortality than the rich, and unfair because they are maintained by unjust social arrangements--arrangements which mean, for instance, that the chances of survival for many children are determined by the socio-economic position into which they are born.
