The aim of this lecture is to discuss the current evidence on the socio-economic inequities in disease outcomes in RMDs. Socio-economic determinants at the individual and country level will be considered, as well as the interplay between these factors. In particular, attention will be given to the role of different socio-economic factors in the access to biologic DMARDs in rheumatoid arthritis.
