Clinical decision making, social justice and client empowerment

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

A child born today in Japan, for example, can expect to live to 82 years of age on average, whereas it is unlikely that a newborn infant in Zimbabwe will reach his or her 34th birthday. Extreme deprivation in health is still widespread. Resolving this predicament of major health improvement in the midst of deprivation is one of the greatest global challenges of the new millennium (Ruger 2004).
