# To understand the theoretical concepts related to equity in health, health disparities, embodiment, structural factors, social determinants, structural violence and barriers to accessing healthcare.
# How does disparities and discrimination become structured biologically into medical problems, morbidity, poor outcomes and death.
# What are models and approaches that we can learn from to address the problem of equity and health disparities.
# How do we apply these concepts in our clinical practice, education and research.

"Of all the forms of inequality, inequality in healthcare is the most shocking and inhumane." - Martin Luther King Jr

Equity is the absence of unfair, avoidable, and remediable differences among groups of people in society. Health is a human right. Health equity can be achieved when everyone can attain their full potential of health and well-being. Realising the right to health, means identifying and eliminating the disparities and discriminations that cause ill health.
