Special Issue: Inequalities in Health

Website - Guest Editor: Prof. Dr. Ulf-G. Gerdtham

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2013

“…..It has been suggested that health is determined by socioeconomic factors and that socioeconomic inequality has to be reduced in order to lessen socioeconomic inequalities in health. There are also income and education policies etc. which could impact on socioeconomic factors and thus socioeconomic health inequalities.

Still, however, little is still known on exactly how such policies will impact on the socioeconomic health inequalities as the causal mechanisms underlying socioeconomic disparities in health are complex and controversial, and the causes may be different across population groups and over the lifecycle. Policies aimed at reducing the socioeconomic inequalities in health may therefore easily be ineffective, inconsistent and even counterproductive.


This Issue welcomes new and innovative methods to measure, monitor and explain changes in socioeconomic health disparities over time including modeling effect of economic policies. Manuscripts which shed light on the causal effects of socioeconomic factors on health are particularly welcome….”  Prof. Dr. Ulf-G. Gerdtham, Guest Editor
