EQUINET is carrying out work on indicators for health equity within the SADC Region. The publications in this section of the database provide information on the distribution of indicators relevant to health equity in southern Africa from a range of available published sources and information on approaches to monitoring equity. A sample of the indicators available is shown below. We welcome comments, feedback and contributions on the data provided through the feedback form provided. This database is maintained through the EQUINET secretariat at TARSC in co-operation with the University of Zimbabwe Medical School.
