We are a multi-disciplinary team formed to study health inequalities and inequities in Canada and in developing countries in a systematic fashion. Our goals are:
to study the magnitude and distribution of health inequalities and inequities cross-sectionally and longitudinally;
to understand and explain the social, structural, psychological, environmental, and behavioural causes of health inequalities and inequities using multi-level and simulation modeling;
to use simulation models to estimate the costs of health inequalities, health inequities, and potential interventions; and
to develop multi-faceted interventions to reduce inequities in health and improve the health of the disadvantaged.
Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide spending on public health services that is spent there. This spending is measured in purchasing power parity.
