10 Best resources on… intersectionality with an emphasis on low- and middle-income countries

Future Health Systems

Larson, E; George, A; Morgan, R and Poteat, T (2016) 10 Best resources on… intersectionality with an emphasis on low- and middle-income countries, Health Policy & Planning, doi: 10.1093/heapol/czw020

Intersectionality has emerged as an important framework for understanding and responding to health inequities by making visible the fluid and interconnected structures of power that create them. To orient readers to intersectionality theory and research, the authors first define intersectionality and describe its role in public health, and then we review resources on intersectionality. The first four resources explain intersectionality as a methodology. The subsequent six articles apply intersectionality to research in LMIC with quantitative and qualitative analysis. The authors provide examples from India, Swaziland, Uganda and Mexico. Topics for the studies range from HIV, violence and sexual abuse to immunization and the use of health entitlements. Through these 10 resources, the authors hope to spark interest and open a needed conversation on the importance and use of intersectional analysis in LMICs as part of understanding people-centred health systems.
