Health Equity and Human Development in the Mediterranean Region

By the dawn of the third millennium, Health Equity has become a central issue. However, equity can mean different things to different people. Moreover, the principles underlying its definition and conceptualization may vary according to economic, medical, philosophical, political, ethical and other considerations.

The present project deals with Health inequity and human development as multidimensional issues spanned by geographical disparities (differences between different geographical areas), gender inequity (systematic differences in health between men and women determined economically, socially or culturally (not biologically or physiologically), ethnic inequalities: between different ethnic groups and socioeconomic inequalities: based on social, economic, political, cultural, linguistic and others (marginalised groups). The focus will be on the Mediterranean region.
