Minority Health - Information on COVID As we are all responding to the COVID pandemic, it is important that information and resources be shared, during this quickly evolving situation. We will continue to share information and frequent communications to our minority health network.   The HHS Office of Minority Health convened more than 2, experts and leaders at the National Leadership Summit for Eliminating Racial and Ethnic Disparities External. At this summit, community leaders, health equity experts and other stakeholders call for Social Determinants of Health-centered, community-driven, systems-oriented, cross-sector.

  Low health literacy and poor communication between health care professionals and ethnic minority people are concerns for the DBP Provincial Health Service, which has collaborated with the University of Sydney and the Vietnamese Women's Union to deliver maternal and child health workshops for health professionals and community leaders, with an emphasis on improving health literacy Cited by: 2.

Racial and ethnic disparities in health care are known to reflect access to care and other issues that arise from differing socioeconomic conditions. There is, however, increasing evidence that even after such differences are accounted for, race and ethnicity remain significant predictors of the quality of health care .

Recognition of the disparities in risk for chronic disease has become the foundation for current efforts to improve health care research, delivery, and education to racial and ethnic groups in the United States.

This book provides health information about genetic and chronic diseases that affect ethnic and racial minorities in the United States. According to the U.S. Census, approximately 36 percent of the population belongs to a racial or ethnic minority group. Though health indicators such as life expectancy and infant mortality have improved for most Americans, some minorities experience a disproportionate burden of preventable disease, death, and disability compared with non-minorities.

Compendia like Multicultural Medicine and Health Disparities are therefore particularly helpful. This single volume, edited by David Satcher and Rubens Pamies, focuses primarily on racial and ethnic health disparities in the United States.

In recent years, it has become clear that the healthcare system in the United States is not providing the same quality of care for ethnic minority populations that it does for the majority white population.

Racial and ethnic disparities in access to and quality of healthcare have been extensively documented.1 The Institute of Medicine report, Unequal Treatment, confirmed that racial and ethnic Author: MC Beach, LA Cooper, KA Robinson, EG Price, TL Gary, MW Jenckes, A Gozu, C Smarth, A Palacio, CJ Feu.
