ABSTRACT

Five Inequities in Health Care   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Much has been written about cost and coverage issues in the American health care system, particularly since the onset of the pandemic. But there needs to be an equally loud clarion call to address massive inequities in health care. These disparities are unfortunately not a new phenomenon, but little progress has been made toward reaching a more equitable and just system. In this report, we analyze inequity throughout the health care system, breaking down the central issues into ve core areas: access to care, cost of care, health outcomes, social factors, and the impact of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. Understanding these inequities is imperative to reforming health care so it provides the best possible care to all people."
