Disparities in Women’s Health

Disparities in Women’s Health

Disparities in health and health care continue to burden women, particularly affecting women of color or those who are poor. To shed more light on the factors contributing to inequalities in health and access to care for women, the Kaiser Family Foundation provided support for the newest issue of the Journal of the American Medical Women’s Association (JAMWA) Disparities in Women’s Health. This special issue features an editorial by Surgeon General David Satcher, M.D., Ph.D., as well as articles focusing on the underlying causes of racial and ethnic inequalities in women’s health and sex differences in health care delivery. This issue also explores the impact of social-economic status, age, and disease on health disparities.

A fully downloadable copy of the article is available on the JAMWA website.
