This chapter describes how social injustice can be reduced by promoting equitable and sustainable human development. It covers requirements for greater social justice in public health. It describes the Millennium Development Goals for poverty reduction and it describes priority actions required of developed countries. The chapter also describes ways in which social injustice can be reduced globally and how sustainable human development can be facilitated. The chapter concludes that actions required for ending social injustice as it affects health go far beyond those of the health sector, and that priority actions extend to many aspects of economic and social policy, nationally and internationally.
