Health is a fundamental human right linked to biological and genetic aspects, but above all to social and environmental factors and to economic and political choices.
Nowadays, there is a large gap between the rich and the poor regarding access to health services, both between different countries and within the same nation. Life expectancy is shorter and the diseases more widespread as it goes down in the social ladder.
The lack of a job, access to precarious and unhealthy jobs, lack of education, belonging to a minority and living in a violent context are factors that heavily affect the state of psychophysical health of every individual and every community.
Starting from the experience accumulated with the International Program for Pediatric Oncology (PIOP), Soleterre has created the dossier “Salute è giustizia sociale” which analyzes how health is becoming more and more a right for the few and what to do to reverse the trend and ensure psycho-physical wellbeing and appropriate care for all.
