What Matters Most: The Health of the Poorest or the Health of the Sickest?

Christopher Murray, September 22, 1999

The seminar topic concerned the approach to health inequality that the WHO Cluster on Evidence and Information is developing. Christopher Murray (World Health Organization) introduced the approach through a four-point presentation, which dealt in turn with: the basic concept; the health indicator whose equal distribution is to be sought; the summary measure to be used; and the way in which the concept is to be operationalized.
