Aims and scope
International Journal for Equity in Health presents evidence relevant to the search for, and attainment of, equity in health across and within countries. The journal publishes research which improves the understanding of issues that influence the health of populations. This includes the discussion of political, policy-related, economic, social and health services-related influences, particularly with regard to systematic differences in distributions of one or more aspects of health in population groups defined demographically, geographically, or socially.
World Health Day 2018
"Health for All" has been the WHO's guiding vision for more than seven decades. On this 70th anniversary year, beginning on April 7th - World Health Day - the WHO will maintain a high-profile focus on Universal Health Coverage via a series of events with global and local conversations about the many ways to achieve #HealthForAll. In support of World Health Day 2018, we've pulled together a collection of high-impact, influential articles and content from across BMC, relevant to this year's UHC theme.
