It can be described as the paradox of global health; the fact that we statistically are healthier and have longer life expectancy than ever but at the same time health is more unevenly distributed. In short, there is a growing gap between those who access the right to health and those who don’t. This is true not only on a global scale but also within most societies, including the Nordic welfare states.

Why is this and how can the universal right to health become available to all?
