520    This timely contribution to the global literature on 
       health inequities approaches the subject through a 
       synthesis and analysis of relevant published literature on
       India. Amongst the BRICS countries, India ranks the lowest
       in the gender-gap index and has the highest poverty rate, 
       and there is clear evidence that socio-economic 
       inequalities have increased in India in the twenty-first 
       century. These have direct impact on the health conditions
       of its people; however, there has been relatively little 
       concerted research attention on health inequities in 
       India. This volume fills the gap by synthesizing research 
       evidence since the year 2000 on the topic. This is perhaps
       the first volume on this topic of such scope and breadth. 
       Its uniqueness lies in the synthesis of evidence across a 
       range of axes of disadvantages within a single volume: 
       socio-economic position, caste, gender, other socially 
       constructed vulnerabilities such as disability, HIV status,
       migrant status; and health-system factors contributing to 
       or mitigating inequities in health. Each core chapter not 
       only summarizes research findings but also engages 
       critically with the perspectives reflected in the chapters
       and proposes a framework for understanding the mechanisms 
       through which health inequities result. This volume 
       highlights and addresses research gaps in both methodology
       and content, and is valuable to researchers and students 
       of public health and allied health disciplines, including 
       the social sciences, and also to policy makers and donors
