What does it mean when people say Health Inequality
Health inequalities basically mean the difference between someones health and their abilities of receive treament.
One health inequality could be living in a rural areas such as western Nebraska. Where you may have to drive a couple hours to find good medical care or even a specialist.

Another health inequality could be related to race such as Sickle Cell Anemia. Which is most prevalent to humans of African decent including African American of whom 1/12 carry the trait. This can be deadly as Sickle Cell disforms the red blood cells preventing them form transporting oxygen.
