Watch the recent webinar on "Different Interpretations of the Capability Approach in a Health Care Context: Why have approaches differed and what should be the focus of future research?" Presented by Philip Kinghorn on April 29th, 2015

Through the past several conferences on the capability approach and now through our growing network of participants worldwide, group participants have begun to examine a number of issues at the nexus of health, disability and capability including, but not exclusive to, questions of social justice; resource allocation; HIV/AIDS and antiretroviral therapy; reproductive health; impairment, disability and special needs; health system financing and access; capabilities and functionings; responsibility; disability and poverty; aging; disability and income conversion; genetics; gender disparities and health; social determinants of health; and micro-credit participation and health.
