According to the World Health Organization's commission on the social determinants of health, "reducing health inequalities is ... an ethical imperative. Social injustice is killing people on a grand scale." Fernando De Maio, associate professor of sociology at DePaul University, explores this concept by examining avoidable health inequalities in the global sphere. He uses sociological methods to analyze empirical data and hopes statistics can be used to bring about policy change.
