THE BROCHER FOUNDATION,
SUMMER SCHOOL PROGRAMME
The 2010 Academy in Global Population Health will focus on “Measurement and Ethical Evaluation of health Inequalities”. A substantive focus will be given to the following topics:
· How should we rank distributions of health across populations in order of inequality?
· What are the ethical implications of using different measures of health inequalities?
· Which -if any- of the common measures of economic inequality are informative when applied to health?
· Are all health inequalities morally objectionable or unjust?
Should we measure health inequalities across groups, across individuals, or both?
· What priority should reduction in health inequalities have among prominent goals of health policy?
