Understanding the Impact of Institutionalised Racism to Vaccine Hesitancy
This case study raises an important question of how institutionalised racism might have impacted vaccine hesitancy – confidence, convenience, and complacency – to black and white communities differently.
Using findings to make recommendations for action to reduce social inequalities in health
Agénor’s work offers an excellent example of how research findings can inform recommendations for action to reduce social inequalities in health.
Applying an equity lens to the measurement and social distribution of a particular health issue: which groups (defined by social categories) are obese?
This case study reveals the benefits of careful consideration of the equity dimensions of the topic you wish to study including approaches to measurement and illustrates the implications of context mapping for question formulation, study design, analysis and policy/practice recommendations.
Using a graphic story booklet in health inequalities research
This case study illustrates a meaningful way of using comics as a reflective tool in health inequalities research as well as a way of reporting and disseminating research findings in equity sensitive ways.
An intersectional inequalities perspective of interpreter-mediated health care encounters
This qualitative study illustrates how the application of an intersectional lens to the analyses of qualitative data can reveal limitations of health care interventions that aim to improve access to care.The authors suggest new ways to address these limitations and promote equitable access to care and used the findings to develop training material for health care providers and interpreters.
Addressing racial inequity and antiracism as determinants of health inequalities: an antiracism lens on research design, conduct and dissemination
This case study highlights the importance of applying an antiracism lens to research. It includes discussion of study design and dissemination and has a strong focus on the role of community engagement as co-creators of research.
Randomised Controlled Trials and Health Equity
This is a case study of two linked papers. The first describes the development and validation of a conceptual framework for identifying ‘health-equity relevant’ RCTs that provide evidence about the distributional effects of interventions. The second paper offers an assessment of the reporting of equity considerations in RCTs identified as ‘health-equity relevant’ and identifies a range of limitations. Both papers offer a set of recommendations to improve the design and reporting of randomised trials to support equity-relevant policy and practice.
