In brief: Depends

How disease is viewed depends on time, society and context.
Usually, higher socio-economic status correlates with better access to healthcare. For example, diabetes in poor areas might be associated with poor access to healthful foods and education, while in affluent areas, might be due to sedentary life-style and overindulgence.
