Further the frame of social class and the knowledge pointstowards the adaptation of the human rights architecture in order to enable the health equity’s realization and further the state is claimed as the bearer of the duty. Furthermore, the inequalities in the illness and health as per the knowledge and the social class are given for the better understanding.

It is very important to promote the social responsibility as it will help in bringing equality in the health and illness.Maximizing investment for the development of healthAccording to the researchers, the government is investing more for the development of the healthof people. The concept of the ecological public concept is being used which is related to the transforming nature of the illness and the health.

Further, this helps in achieving sustainable development and the health.Growing partnerships for the promotion of the health educationAccording to the various disciplines, the partnerships are growing among various health development organizations in order to promote heath education in such a way that the people of backwards classes become conscious about their health like the people who have the higher socioeconomic status and have a social class. The main aim of such organizations is to bring equality among the health and the illness.
