The objective of this essay is for you to explore the range of determinants that contribute to health inequalities for a specific population group. Health inequalities refer to “differences in health status or in the distribution of health determinants between different population groups” (WHO, 2018).

Using data, you will identify a health inequality experienced by a specific population group. Then, you will use evidence to explore the range of determinants that contribute to these inequalities.
