Report Identifies Issues Behind Racial Health Disparities

November 2017

Research

Country of origin: USA

The Commonwealth Fund released a report, ?Racial and ethnic disparities in US health care: A chartbook,? that cites previous research showing minorities have poorer health, limited access to care and are more likely to be uninsured than other US residents. These findings are partly due to income, education and insurance coverage.

The report includes 75 charts and analyses to serve as an easily accessible resource to help policymakers, researchers and others understand disparities in their communities and to formulate solutions and provide tools to help understand the nature and aetiology of disparities.
