Inequality in Health and Health Care
Presenter: Dr Apostolos Davillas (University of East Anglia, IZA, GLO and RWI-Essen)
Economists (and more broadly social scientists) are increasingly focusing on the measurement and causes of inequality in health. This reflects the concern that health inequality reflects social injustices, and it is also in response to the trend away from a narrow focus on income inequality to broader inequality in wellbeing analysis.
This one-day course aims to researchers and analysts interested in the quantitative analysis of inequity and (socio-economic and regional) inequality in health. This consists of lectures and practical sessions on measurement and interpretation of inequity and inequality in health and health care. Specifically, this course provides a gentle introduction to the concept of inequity, socio-economic inequality, and inequality of opportunity in health, i.e., the “egalitarian” framework that does not necessarily indicate equality of the distribution of outcomes per se but emphasises the role of individual responsibility in defining a “fair” distribution of health in the society. The course also includes practical sessions and illustrative examples on the measurement of inequality in health using subjective and more objectively measured health indicators. The latter builds on the recent development of social science surveys collecting physical measurements and markers derived from biological samples, in addition to self-reported health assessments.
The course is a gentle introduction to inequity and socio-economic (and regional) inequality in health and health care that covers:
-A number of approaches (employed by economists, social scientists and bio-social researchers) on the measurement of socio-economic inequality in health and healthcare
-The concept of inequality of opportunity in health
-Measurement of inequality and inequality of opportunity in health
-Practical sessions and illustrative examples on the measurement of health inequality
