Formatted abstract
...in the relatively rich over-developed world, scholars like Richard Wilkinson have argued consistently since 1976 not only that the more poverty stricken you are, the shorter, less healthy and more problem ridden the life you are likely to live but also that the healthiest and least problem-ridden societies are those with the most equitable distribution of income (i.e., the least relative poverty) and the unhealthiest and most problem-ridden societies are those with the most inequitable distribution of income (i.e., the most relative poverty)...

...Having read this Special section we hope it will be hard to resist the conclusion that it is an urgent priority for us to better understand the socio-structural violence which is poverty and to better deploy that understanding progressively in the interests of, and in collaboration with, those subjected every day to the war without bullets in our communities.
