Health inequalities have long been deeply engrained in society. If we are to address these inequalities, we need to reflect on what has driven them, and critically review the approaches that do and do not work. This Monograph brings together leading experts and up-and-coming researchers, in a collection of state-of-the-art articles, discussing the drivers and consequences of respiratory inequality.
