1300 Doing Health Justice
Health and illness are not randomly distributed. Structures such as race and social class, racism and capitalism, and all of our social, political and economic institutions create and maintain health inequities. How do we eliminate the disproportionate burden of morbidity and mortality in Black communities and among others who are hit hardest by systems of oppression? Centering health justice as a set of measurable actions offers promise.
Sirry Alang, PhD, Associate Professor, Black Communities and the Social Determinants of Health, University of Pittsburgh School of Education
