The essay mainly analyses the issue of inequalities and differences in health. At present, vulnerable and socially disadvantaged people throughout the world have lower access to healthcare, get sick more often and die earlier than those with a privileged social position. Despite general developments of global wealth and technological progress, inequalities have never grown so exponentially. Increasingly critical are the roles of social capital as well as that of the World Health Organization and of its policy, whose effects can, in the course of the time, reduce health inequalities and re-establish a principle of ethical and distributive justice.
