Aims and scope
At a time when health inequalities across the world are widespread and often increasing, International Journal for Equity in Health provides a highly visible forum where strong evidence relevant to the search for, and attainment of, equity in health can be found. Served by a globally recognized editorial board, the journal publishes research which improves the understanding of issues that influence the health of populations and shapes evidence-based decisions by health policy-makers.
International Journal for Equity in Health focuses on disseminating influential research which examines the political, policy-related, economic, social, and health systems- and services-related influences, particularly with regard to identifying and understanding the systematic differences in distributions of one or more aspects of health in population groups defined demographically, geographically, or socially.
