The health pandemic provided an opportunity on how to improve access and distribution of health resources equitably.   Richardson et al. (2021) study how wealth redistribution may have reduced the mortality of the pandemic.  Forecasting the effects of greater health inequities may reveal a future need for reparations.  Torres (2018) studied the reparations movement in the Caribbean and how scientific genetic data could possibly contribute to the discussion of reparations. Bassett and Galea (2020) discuss the limited progress in addressing racial health inequalities.  The health inequities may also be reviewed globally to plan strategies for improving global health systems.
