From the Paper:

"It has been widely acknowledged that poverty, racism, gender inequality and violence are the crucial factors exerting wide unequal influence of disease globally. Even though laboratory research has generated remarkable progress in the field of modern medicines, such advancements have the advantages of a small portion of the world's population and mostly amidst affluent settings. The racial and economic inequalities exert considerable public health problems in United States. In underdeveloped regions the infectious disease still continues to be a leading cause of premature demise and the health inequalities in such regions are found to be more considerable."
