The world health situation

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

This article, based on a speech given at the Sixth IUHP European Conference on Health Promotion and Education, describes the consequences of the concentration of economic, political, and cultural power in the world today (in the countries of both North and South) for the health and well-being of the world population. The author stresses that the current world disorder is based on a set of alliances between the dominant classes (and economic and financial groups) of the North and the dominant classes (and groups) of the South against redistributional policies that would adversely affect their interests. This situation hurts the health and well-being of the dominated classes and other social groups of both North and South.
