      HEALTH, VITAL GOALS, AND CENTRAL HUMAN CAPABILITIES 

      Venkatapuram, Sridhar (Bioethics, 2013)

      I argue for a conception of health as a person’s ability to achieve or exercise a cluster of basic human activities. These basic activities are in turn specified through free-standing ethical reasoning about what constitutes a minimal conception of a human life with equal human dignity in the modern world. I arrive at this conception of health by closely following and modifying Lennart Nordenfelt’s theory of health which presents health as the ability to achieve vital goals. Despite its strengths I transform Nordenfelt’s argument in order to ...

      Intersectionality and health-related stigma: insights from experiences of people living with stigmatized health conditions in Indonesia 

      Rai, Sarju Sing; Peters, Ruth M. H.; Syurina, Elena V.; Irwanto, Irwanto; Naniche, Denise; Zweekhorst, Marjolein B. M. (International Journal for Equity in Health, 2020-12)

      Abstract Background Health-related stigma is a complex phenomenon, the experience of which intersects with those of other adversities arising from a diversity of social inequalities and oppressive identities like gender, sexuality, and poverty – a concept called “intersectionality”. Understanding this intersectionality between health-related stigma and other forms of social marginalization can provide a fuller and more comprehensive picture of stigma associated with health conditions. The main objective ...

      Intersectionality: Multiple Inequalities in Social Theory 

      Walby, Sylvia; Armstrong, Jo; Strid, Sofia (SAGE Journal, 2012-04)

      The concept of intersectionality is reviewed and further developed for more effective use. Six dilemmas in the debates on the concept are disentangled, addressed and resolved: the distinction between structural and political intersectionality; the tension between ‘categories’ and ‘inequalities’; the significance of class; the balance between a fluidity and stability; the varyingly competitive, cooperative, hierarchical and hegemonic relations between inequalities and between projects; and the conundrum of ‘visibility’ in the tension between the ...

      10 Best resources on… intersectionality with an emphasis on low- and middle-income countries 

      Larson, Elizabeth; George, Asha; Morgan, Rosemary; Poteat, Tonia (Health Policy and Planning, 2016-10-01)

      Intersectionality has emerged as an important framework for understanding and responding to health inequities by making visible the fluid and interconnected structures of power that create them. It promotes an understanding of the dynamic nature of the privileges and disadvantages that permeate health systems and affect health. It considers the interaction of different social stratifiers (e.g. ‘race’/ ethnicity, indigeneity, gender, class, sexuality, geography, age, disability/ability, migration status, religion) and the power structures that ...
