Health and Disability

This thematic group is a network of social scientists, physicians, public health practitioners, and philosophers interested in health and disability issues from a capability perspective. 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.
