Marginalization and Health

By Jacey Magnussen

This audio project is intended to be a beginning point for thinking about the feedback loop between marginalization and unmet health care needs. A person’s environment and social context has an important impact on their health, and exclusion from health care keeps many people at a significant disadvantage. This exclusion is a form of violence.

Health is at once seen as a requirement for people to be productive, contributing members of a capitalist society; but through the privatization of certain aspect of health care, and the physical and social barriers that people encounter, health is not equally accessible to all people. Here is a comprehensive bibliography of references used in this project.

Thank you 

Thanks to Irene Shankar and Isaiah MacDonald, who shared important insights about health care practices and exclusions.
