Research into the sociology of health and illness is the
primary objective of RC 15. It supports individual scholars,
institutions, and associations that are concerned with such
research. It promotes information exchange and scientific
meetings at regional, national, and international levels.
It encourages the generation of sociological knowledge that
enables health professional administrators, officials, and
planners to improve the delivery of health services in the
domains of prevention, management, cure, and rehabilitation.
It also stimulates the thinking of health scholars in search
of the most vital concepts and analytical frameworks for
understanding health and illness in society.
