As in many developing and developed countries, health inequity remains a prominent feature of the Arab countries’ health profile. Thus far, the limited research efforts in this area of study have underscored high levels of poor health among disadvantaged groups in the population. These limited investigations, coupled with escalating concern for health equity in the international community, have built up a substantial momentum and commitment on the part of national policy makers to reduce health disparities. This heightened commitment accentuates the need for equity-oriented health policies informed by evidence and knowledge, guided by continuing applied research and capable to address the root causes of health inequity.
