Ghaffar, and HPSR HRH reader collaborators.This special collection represents a critical response to the frequent silencing of qualitative, social science research approaches in mainstream public health journals, particularly in those that inform the field of health policy and systems research (HPSR), and the study of equity in health. Presented by SHAPES, a thematic working group of Health Systems Global, this collection showcases how qualitative and theory-driven approaches can contribute to better promoting equity in health within the field of HPSR.

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.
