Proposal for a Political Economy of Health Working Group
Access to health and healthcare is a social right that goes beyond international borders and local health systems. A ‘political economy’ approach to health research implies the investigation of all factors concerning accessible and equitable health to all.
By promoting research and debate on Political Economy of Health, this working group seeks to analyse and produce critical evidence of contemporary issues related to the social right to health and the social determinants of health. The initiative aims to gather scholars interested in the analyses of how the capitalist system affects the process of entailing health as a right to every human being, influencing progressive social health policies and actions.
