PLOS ONE is proud to publish the Health Inequities and Disparities Collection. Launched in September 2019, this Call for Papers welcomed articles on all relevant disciplines in the field of public health tackling health inequities and disparities. The resulting collection, in the words of one of our Guest Editors, Professor Diana Burgess, "features cutting-edge papers that tackle health inequities and disparities by researchers from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The collection is truly international in scope and addresses a broad range of health inequities, rooted in historic and contemporary laws, policies, and practices, which disadvantage certain groups. These papers include health equities due to race/ethnicity, socio-economic status, sexual or gender minority identification, immigrant status (including undocumented immigrants), incarceration, socio-economic status, and country of residence. This thought-provoking collection is an important contribution to the field of health inequities and disparities and will expand our understanding of how we define and study these topics."
