Throughout 2020, issues related to health equity have been brought to the foreground. While Global Health as a discipline has long been concerned with the social determinants of health and health inequities, it is also criticized for reproducing inequitable relations through neo-colonial practices.

We’ve asked four experts in Global Health for their thoughts on moving towards global health equity.
