RC15 Sociology of Health

Objectives

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.
