Multimorbidity in Health
International Journal for Equity in Health would like to announce the launch of a new series looking at Multimorbidity and Equity in Health. Multimorbidity, the co-occurrence of health conditions in individuals and populations, is a phenomenon with high burden and high prevalence in persons and groups of disadvantaged circumstances, such as low socioeconomic status, immigrants, and ethnic/cultural minorities.
This special issue will accept papers on patterns and trends of multimorbidity inequity, variations in multimorbidity burden by social characteristics, and on the impact of multimorbidity inequity on health care resource use and outcomes.
This series will be published in 2013.
