Let me add (if it helps) that there are examples I have seen in academic papers where researchers have computed the SII on aggregate data using Weighted Least Squares: which in Stata can be done using OLS on transformed variables. 
A useful reference is Wagstaff "On the measurement of Inequalities in Health" in Social Science & Medicine (1991;5;pp.545-557).

As Nick says below, more details on your desired measure/data structure/health outcomes would be needed for more detailed help. 
Best wishes

I imagine so. Typing -findit inequality- in Stata {NB] will show many user-written programs. They are likely to include what you seek, if only under a different name. For example, economists seem especially prone to using authors' names rather than conceptual tags.

If that fails, giving a precise reference and a precise definition might help jog someone's memory.
