9780230304383: Global Health Inequities: A Sociological Perspective (Sociology for Globalizing Societies)

Despite living in a 'globalized' world where advances in medicine, technology and science come at an ever-increasing pace, there exist staggering inequalities in health. Even as we celebrate new pharmaceutical developments, access to already-existing medicines is hindered by economic and political barriers for poor people around the world.

Critical but accessible, Global Health Inequities questions taken-for-granted assumptions, showing how breakthroughs in biomedicine alone cannot address inequities in health. The book's analysis of theory and empirical work elucidates key debates and highlights the most significant challenges facing global health today, including the growing burden of chronic non-communicable diseases and the persistent injustice of neglected tropical diseases.

Fernando De Maio identifies the need for sociological analysis in global health, drawing together research from public health, sociology, anthropology and related fields, in order to expand the scope of the medical gaze towards a more holistic and structural perspective of health inequity.

Review:

"This book is an important reference for anyone with an interest in global inequity in health. The book is erudite and accessible, offering an innovative approach not just to the study of health but also to broader sociological debate on globalization. The book deserves a wide readership." - Kate Reed, Senior Lecturer in Medical Sociology, University of Sheffield, UK "This book stands out from its competitors by taking an engaged approach to the political dimensions that lie behind global health policies to reduce health inequalities." - Paul Higgs, Professor of Sociology of the Ageing, University College London, UK "Well researched, well written, and well worth the read." - Michael Hayes, Director of Health Research and Education, University of Victoria, Canada
