TOWARDS BIAS FREE RESEARCH FOR HEALTH

The intent of this publication is to provide a tool for examining and eliminating biases in health and health research that derive from social hierarchies. Social hierarchies are built on the basis of gender, ability, race, class/caste, age, ethnicity, aboriginal status, geographic region, language, religion, and sexual orientation, among others. In every society, access to social goods, decision-making and economic and social wellbeing is shared unequally among all members depending on where they fit in a given social hierarchy. Power structures within a society serve to reinforce and maintain the various social hierarchies.

The theoretical framework underpinning the work draws on a long history of scholarly research related to the social dimensions of scientific knowledge, power and access to resources.
