The International Society for Equity in Health, ISEqH, is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2000 to promote equity in health care internationally through education, research, and promoting the scientific exchange of knowledge about issues pertaining to health care equity. Barbara Starfield and Jose Maria Paganini, from Argentina, co-founded the ISEqH and Starfield was its first president. The organization was formed at a time, between the early 1980s and late 1990s, of increased academic attention to socio-economic inequalities in health. Inequity in health is defined by the organization as “systematic disadvantage in the health status across populations groups and subgroups due to socioeconomic differences.” The ISEqH’s inaugural conference was held in Havana, Cuba in June, 2000. Subsequent conferences were held in Toronto (2002); Durban, South Africa (2004); Adelaide, Australia (2006); and Crete, Greece (2009). The organization’s publications include the ISEQH Newsletter.

Materials include documents pertaining to the organization’s formation and early development as well as conferences and meetings. Materials include agendas, articles of incorporation and amendment; draft of ISEqH constitution, correspondence, financial statements, minutes, ISEQH Newsletter, hand written notes, paper abstracts, reports, rosters of Board Members and officers, officers’ records, programs, papers, strategic plan, and typescript of the opening ceremony remarks of the Inaugural conference in Cuba.
