When one looks at the classic picture of equity versus equality, we note the three people standing on various boxes looking over a fence. Equality gives everyone, irrespective of height differences, the same amount of boxes. Equity gives people boxes, or not, depending on their height to see over the fence. The only thing wrong with this description is that nobody gets justice if the barrier of the fence isn’t removed. Removal of barriers, creates a more just society. It is no different in healthcare.
