Description du livre Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United States, 2015. Hardback. État : New. 254 x 155 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In Baltimore s inner-city neighborhood of Upton/Druid Heights, a man s life expectancy is sixty-three; not far away, in the Greater Roland Park/Poplar neighborhood, life expectancy is eighty-three. The same twenty-year avoidable disparity exists in the Calton and Lenzie neighborhoods of Glasgow, and in other cities around the world.In Sierra Leone, one in 21 fifteen-year-old women will die in her fertile years of a maternal-related cause; in Italy, the figure is one in 17,100; but in the United States, which spends more on healthcare than any other country in the world, it is one in 1,800. Why?Dramatic differences in health are not a simple matter of rich and poor; poverty alone doesn t drive ill health, but inequality does. Indeed, suicide, heart disease, lung disease, obesity, and diabetes, for example, are all linked to social disadvantage. In every country, people at relative social disadvantage suffer health disadvantage and shorter lives. Within countries, the higher the social status of individuals, the better their health. These health inequalities defy the usual explanations. Conventional approaches to improving health have emphasized access to technical solutions and changes in the behavior of individuals, but these methods only go so far. What really makes a difference is creating the conditions for people to have control over their lives, to have the power to live as they want. Empowerment is the key to reducing health inequality and thereby improving the health of everyone. Marmot emphasizes that the rate of illness of a society as a whole determines how well it functions; the greater the health inequity, the greater the dysfunction.Marmot underscores that we have the tools and resources materially to improve levels of health for individuals and societies around the world, and that to not do so would be a form of injustice. Citing powerful examples and startling statistics ( young men in the U.S. have less chance of surviving to sixty than young men in forty-nine other countries ), The Health Gap presents compelling evidence for a radical change in the way we think about health and indeed society, and inspires us to address the societal imbalances in power, money, and resources that work against health equity.

Description du livre Bloomsbury Press. Hardcover. État : New. Hardcover. 400 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.The richest live, on average, longer than adults of upper middle class income levels, who in turn live longer than members of the middle class, and so on. How and why does this happen, when middle class families in any developed nation could hardly be considered poverty-stricken The same phenomenon occurs with the level of education; adults with Ph. D. s live longer than those with a masters degree, masters longer than bachelors, and so on again. This richer understanding of poverty and health is Michael Marmots brilliant and arresting focus in The Health Gap as he approaches what he calls the social gradient in health and its complicated relationship to health and poverty. As Marmot shows, improvement in the health of people who are relatively disadvantaged--i. e. most of us, compared to concentrations of wealth at the very top of the income ladder--is built on two intertwining pillars: material conditions for good health, and control of life circumstances or empowerment. Addressing these issues is the only path to improved health and healthcare for people of all income brackets around the world. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. N° de réf. du libraire 9781632860781
