    Au cours de ces dernières années, de nombreux chercheurs issus de divers domaines des sciences sociales ont posé l'existence d'une relation entre inégalité de revenu et état de santé, l'ont examiné dans des études empiriques et ont commencé à proposer des applications de politiques. Cependant, de nombreuses ambiguïtés persistent et, par conséquent, personne ne sait comment cette relation fonctionne réellement. Dans ce cadre, ce bref article se propose d'enquêter sur ce qui est connu à ce jour sur la relation entre inégalité de revenu et état de santé et offre des suggestions quant à la façon de produire davantage de santé.
