The global burden of health inequity and the introduction to equinomics.

This study estimates, for the first time, how the world has performed in committing to its only commom global health objective : achieving the best feasible health for all people (Aticle 1 of the constitution of the World Health Organization, adopted in 1947).It is based in the identification of countries which are healthier than average, at resource use below average (feasible models) and with carbon emmissions per capita below average (sustainable).Comparing their survival rates in each 5 year age group and sex, and from 1950 till 2010, the method allows, thorugh the adjustment of mortality rates, the estimation of the burden of health inequity by the number, and proportion, of avoidable (and unfair) detahs.

The analysis estimates an annual burden of global health inequity of some 17 million deaths, close to 40% of all deaths below 80. The time trend shows that the burden of health inequity -possibly the most snesitive indicator of social justice- has remained stangnant since the 80s, it affects women more than men, and concentrates in the countries with GDP pc below the most efficient of the country models. This is a limit we call the dignity threshold and which opens a new discipline, equinomics, and by estimating the lives´cost of excess resource accumulation and nature´s exhaustion, it allows the cncept and mesurement of e holistic index, with ratings very different to the ortodox thinking around the Human Development Index.
