Drivers of Inequity

You will see the term “Drivers of inequality” throughout EQUIST. This refers to one of three factors that contributes the most to inequalities in a select target population. The main driver is the criteria we use to operationalize our strategy:

  1. Province/District: regions within a country. For example, there could be substantial geographic differences in mortality or other relevant dimensions across regions.
  2. Wealth quintile: categorized from poorest (Q1) to richest (Q5)
  3. Areas of residence: urban vs. rural
