Human rights, access to care and health activism. RHAP Presentation at Health Inequities Conference.

At the International Conference on Health Inequities and the Social Determinants of Health hosted by Wits School of Public Health and SAMA on 22-23 February 2017, Marije Versteeg-Mojanaga presented on inequities in rural health care at times of budget constraints; explaining why our priority-setting process if flawed; why cutting now is costing us later and why the notion of “unavailable resources” to meet the health needs of the most vulnerable members in society (deprived rural households; people with mental illnesses; farm workers and so on) can be contested as its all a matter of priority-setting. RHAP Presentation Health Inequities Conference SoPH
