    Friday 27 November – Health Inequality and Justice

    In virtually all countries of the world, richer, better educated, and higher status people live longer and in better health than poorer, less well educated and lower status people. Jonathan Wolff, Professor of Philosophy at UCL, will look at the reasons why this might be, whether the resulting inequalities in health are unjust, and what could be done to change the situation.
