Description

The issue of socioeconomic inequality within India has only continue to grow with urbanization over the years. The presence of this inequality within both rural and urban settings of India creates situations in which those who need access to quality evidence-based medical treatments do not have access to it. The reason for this lack of access is not because the technology does not exist to resolve the medical issue, but rather because the funding for certain types of medical equipment is not available in certain areas of India. The disparity in health outcomes based on socioeconomic status is staggering- this presentation seeks to locate and bring awareness to incidences of the highest disparities in health outcomes by analyzing various (economic) metrics.
