Abstract

Exploring inequity in health; an ecological approach


Abstract:


 Inequity in health is characterized by inadequate allocation of both maternal and human resources to the extent that   differences remained between rural and urban health services in terms of access and quality of services. Changes in social sector have further fuelled inequity as social reforms have been interspaced with fiscal crises and wars. These crises have resulted in widening income distribution, poverty, and decreased employment. At the centre of inequity in health is the fundamental respect for human rights, regardless of age, colour, creed, culture, gender, sexual orientation and social status.


This paper out-lines an ecological framework to increase our understanding of the magnitude and nature of the problems caused by inequity in health. The current challenge demands innovative ideas, creative thinking and action, aimed at bridging the ever widening gap in health care delivery system of the country


Key-words:


Inequity in health, ecological, health care
