What is social exclusion? Why is social exclusion the most daunting threat to global health and development? Social Exclusion and Community Capital has created a new theory and offers a multi-equitable partnership model to resolve global health challenges. This new theory offers readers a valuable insight into the use of critical links and community capital to improve global development. The book also illustrates the urgent need to address exclusion as a collective undertaking in the form of innovative partnerships. The new multi-equitable model provides an integrated framework for charities, businesses, inter-governmental agencies, and civil societies. Social Exclusion and Community Capital will be highly influential to global policy planners, academic scholars, global health practitioners, and students by providing an innovative solution to improve the future of humanity.
