¿Hay que hacer algo más fuera de la consulta? #dsg11


In the office, we can help one patient at a time. This is worthwhile and important. I have spent my life doing so.But now it is clear that social policies that promote a more
equal sharing of the social product greatly improve population health and the social environment. Physicians can help lead society to a more equitable and healthier future by advocating and working toward a fairer distribution of wealth and income.
In Virchow’s day, the great physician advocated for social reforms as the best way to fight a typhus epidemic. Virchow, the founder of Social Medicine, claimed that
physicians are the natural attorneys of the poor, and the social problems should largely be solved by them.”
Similarly, in our day, Sir Michael Marmot has called on physicians to lead “the charge for action across a broad front to reduce inequalities in health.”
Will you join me in this noble cause?
