My research areas are mostly related to sociopolitical and economic determinants of health and health inequality. I have examined and continue to examine such determinants at local, national, and international levels. My research has reinforced my interest in issues of freedom, social justice, social policy and a fair distribution of societal resources that empowers people to realize their potential for development and improve their well-being.
I view determinants of health to be the same as determinants of economic development and human well-being. As such, I think of health both as an essential prerequisite for development and as a desired outcome of development.
