Description
This quarterly journal aims to advance the science of understanding and addressing health inequities among marginalized and vulnerable populations.

Despite many existing definitions of health inequity, what is common across them is that differences in risk, incidence, prevalence, treatment, or outcomes between defined populations are systematic, preventable, and unjust.

The journal publishes rigorous scholarly work from multiple disciplines using quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, and systems science to elevate policy-relevant research and practice that acknowledges the roles of social networks, families, and communities in contextualizing health. The focus of the research is on health inequities, their social and structural determinants, and strategies for intervening, all toward the ultimate goal of advancing health equity.
