Le médecin face aux inégalités sociales de santé: quel pouvoir d'action?
|Published in||Revue médicale suisse. 2012, vol. 8, no. 341, p. 1061-2,1064-6|
|Abstract||The link between social inequalities and health has been known for many years, as attested by Villermé's work on the "mental and physical status of the working class" (1840). We have more and more insight into the nature of this relationship, which embraces not only material deprivation, but also psychological mechanisms related to social and interpersonal problems. Defining our possible role as physicians to fight against these inequalities has become a public health priority. Instruments and leads, which are now available to help us in our daily practice, are presented here.|
