The Gap

Notes from the ISGlobal Think Tank on Inequity and Global Health


The boundaries between the ‘developed' and the ‘developing' world are becoming blurred, giving rise to a much more complex scenario in which the health problems "of the poor" are no longer limited to the risks of childbirth or a handful of tropical diseases.

This paper is ISGlobal's first attempt to define a position and a work agenda for inequity and global health. The paper is in part based on the content of the seminar Building a Global Health Social Contract for the 21st Century, held in Barcelona in November 2013.
