As per the World Health Organization “Health inequities are avoidable inequalities in health between groups of people within countries and between countries”. The interplay of social, economic, environmental and cultural determinants produce health inequity. Literature supports that by addressing the determinants of health disparities by relevant programs and policies can reduce the prevalent health disparities and improve the health of diverse population groups. This study would help in developing tailored intervention targeted to reduce the social, economic and health inequities. The research would help in identifying the key areas which need to be addressed through intervention to improve the health status of the general population.
