In this AIAS seminar, a group presentation will be given by the AIAS-PIREAU fellows who work at AIAS on the theme of 'Inequality in health' in both individual projects and together as a group. 

Inequalities in health are one of the greatest social challenges of our time. Global health inequities are dramatic both between and within countries. Even in affluent European nations, with free access to many health services, there are surprisingly large differences in health status and life expectancy. Moreover, health inequities are generally increasing. As a result, the UN highlights the fight against inequities and the promotion of health and well-being for all as two key global goals.
