Inequalities in health – within and between societies – are closely linked to how we organize our societies and how resources are distributed. This seminar will discuss why it is important to research inequality in health – its drivers, dynamics and effects – as well as how this research can be made politically relevant – including in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic – for example when it comes to how vaccines are distributed.

Ole Frithjof Norheim (UiB/BCEPS) and  Alicia E. Yamin (Harvard University/Partners in Health) in conversation with Anja Ariansen (UiB).
