By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Current study results on Health and Medicine have been published. According to news reporting out of Washington , District of Columbia , by NewsRx editors, research stated, "By disaggregating gains in child health in Bangladesh over the past several decades, significant improvements in gender and socioeconomic inequities have been revealed. With the use of a social determinants of health approach, key features of the country's development experience can be identified that help explain its unexpected health trajectory." Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from World Bank , "The systematic equity orientation of health and socioeconomic development in Bangladesh , and the implementation attributes of scale, speed, and selectivity, have been important drivers of health improvement. Despite this impressive pro-equity trajectory, there remain significant residual inequities in survival of girls and lower wealth quintiles as well as a host of new health and development challenges such as urbanisation, chronic disease, and climate change." According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Further progress in sustaining and enhancing equity-oriented achievements in health hinges on stronger governance and longer-term systems thinking regarding how to effectively promote inclusive and equitable development within and beyond the health system."
