Looking back and moving forward: Addressing health inequities after COVID-19
CHSPR faculty member Kim McGrail, CHSPR PhD student Jeffrey Morgan, and colleague Arjumand Siddiqui offer three questions to guide thinking about health and health inequities after 2020: (1) what do we mean by “health” and “health inequality and inequity”? (2) what are the structures and policies we put in place to support or promote health, and how effective are they? And (3) who has the power to shape structures and policies, and whose interests do those structures and policies serve?
