Health promotion is crucial to keeping people well and preventing illness. A major challenge is that many health promotion programs are focused on individual behaviour and do not take peoples’ unequal conditions and opportunities into account. As a result, they are not effective for vulnerable and marginalized communities, and can actually make disparities worse if programs are taken up disproportionately by the more advantaged. This paper by Wendy Rice analyzes how equity can be built into health promotion.
