OVERVIEW AND BENEFITS


Health care inequities are a persistent problem for specific demographic groups such as racial and ethnic minorities—as well as the poor. Better understanding these challenges can help medical professionals gain the proper context to address these inequities and better serve communities. This comprehensive analysis of health disparities provides context to specific health outcomes associated with marked disparities, using data over a five-year period. The analysis conducted in this guide reveals:

  • Specific health outcomes that are associated with marked disparities are underrepresented in this research
  • Over the five-year period studied, there has been an increasing emphasis on solution focused health equity research along with a decrease in the proportion of studies to detect health inequities
  • Certain populations suffer morbidity and mortality- such as those with disabilities, LGBT communities, rural populations and Native American Indians
