Research in Health and Inequality
At Berkeley Public Health, we recognize that health outcomes do not exist in a vacuum. In and outside hospital walls, inequality is a defining issue of our time and has a profound impact on health.
Our faculty and students conduct research that emphasizes the social determinants of health—how factors like socioeconomic status, racism and place determine susceptibility to certain diseases and conditions—and how to use this knowledge to help communities implement changes that foster equality and social justice.
