    (Harvard University, Boston, USA)


Cassis Henry and Paul Farmer argue that the promise of increasing opportunity and inclusion in the ‘medical lifeboat’ remains unrealized for many. They examine the mechanisms by which social inequalities sculpt the contours of modern epidemics. Development (1999) 42, 31–34. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110079
