Mainstreaming Equity: Applications in and Lessons from Low- and Middle-Income Country Contexts
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development foregrounded the importance of “leaving no one behind.” What does this mean for research? Drawing from close to two decades of experience, Nambiar will present contexts, processes, and findings of equity-oriented research that she has been involved with, largely in India but also quite often as part of global collaborations and partnerships. These include health inequality monitoring, research with urban poor populations facing exclusion and disadvantage, and frontline health worker time use and aspirations. Key lessons and future directions for equity-oriented research will also be shared.
