The basic aim of the unit is to show that social factors have a significant role both in the incidence of health and illness, and in the delivery of health care services.
Major sections are:
(i) Social patterns of health and illness, which focuses on describing and providing explanations for the differences between major social groups;
(ii) Social groups in health care, which focuses on the development and current roles of several major occupational groups in the health care system; and
(iii) Social issues in health care, which provides a sociological perspective on a range of pressing health issues.
