This volume reports results from collective exploratory research efforts. Ten member sites in sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia participated in the coordinated program to explore, adapt, and apply appropriate demographic surveillance system survey methods to determine the relationship between socio-economic factors at multiple levels and inequities of both access to health services and health outcomes. The findings are designed to help program and policy makers overcome health status disparities and improve overall health status of the poor. No index is provided.
