Questions related to Health Inequality
I am interested in understanding the most effective public health interventions that have successfully addressed health inequalities across diverse global settings. In your experience or from your research, which interventions have shown the greatest impact in reducing health disparities and improving overall population health? Additionally, what are the key factors that contribute to the success of these interventions, and how can they be adapted for use in different contexts? I am eager to hear your insights and engage in a fruitful discussion that can help inform future public health strategies.
I am conducting research for a Health Psychology MSc. My chosen topic is to explore racial healthcare experience disparities, and healthcare inequalities, in the maternal/perinatal period. I am trying to find an appropriate health psychological theories that can be applied to these to help underpin my research and interview schedule.

I am researching racism in France, related policies and their effects, but most of what I find is in English by US authors. I would like to read on this issue in French by French scholars/writers. Also, I am interested in different/opposing pov.

hello, please I need to begin a work on the perspective of Karl Marx on social class and health inequalities. however I need ideas and useful articles cos I am confused of how to link this theory to health practice and inequalities.
I don't know the difference between this two theories. I know that they have contact points, e.g. influence of social and historical context in human lives, the support networks and life-long process. But, I wonder what is the difference?
I am looking for a good social research on the mechanisms responsible of social inequalities based on qualitative methods (in-depth interviews, focus group, participant observation, discourse analysis and so on). Has anyone some suggestion? Thank you in advance,
Please recommend research articles which discuss the efficacy of slum and informal settlement based women groups, based on studies, authors, or collaborators conducted in such slums, informal settlements in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and countries in Africa.
In 2013, Mike Savage and others proposed a new model of class that was no longer based exclusively upon socio-economic status (SES). They suggested seven classes, including a ‘precariat’, ‘emergent service workers’, ‘technical middle class’ and ‘elite’ class. The previous SES version showed a class gradient correlating with health outcomes, and this assocation was generally explained in terms of deprivation and access to health care and health knowledge. Can the new model be used to explain health inequalities, and if so, what is the mechanism?
I've read theToni Schofield's paper on Health sociology review journal about health inequities and its social determinants. In the paper, the author did mention that health inequities and health inequalities or differences are not the same. I do not get this point. What is the difference b/w health inequities and health inequalities? Could you give me an example to understand the difference, please? Thank you so much
Globalization is a present process in the new century that has impacted on several areas, including health and health care. Despite some positive effects of the globalization such as increased connection between people and nations, globalization has been accompanied by increasing inequality and also created several consequences for health, especially for the vulnerable population.
