Event description
Health disparities, inequalities, inequities: What’s the difference and why does it matter?

About this Event

Although the term health equity has become widely familiar in public health over the past few years, there is no consensus about its meaning or the meaning of the related terms health disparities and health inequalities.

This talk will discuss these concepts, their inter-relationships and distinctions, and the implications for policy and practice.

Paula Braveman, MD, MPH is Professor of Family and Community Medicine and Director of the Center for Health Equity at UCSF. For over three decades she has studied and published extensively on health equity and the social determinants of health, and worked with local, state, national, and international health agencies to bring attention to these issues domestically and internationally. She was elected to the Institute of Medicine (now the National Academy of Medicine) in 2002.
