Abstract:

Despite a perception that the scholarship and practice of public service and medicine transcend race and racism, it is imperative to situate both in their wider social context in order to capture the implications of both issues in analysis. The health gap that exists among racial groups in the US is an important consequence of social inequities that exist in the healthcare system. The disparity in health outcome and opportunity is so widespread, in fact, that the United States Department of Health and Human Services has declared the elimination of such disparities as one of the major goals of the nation in its Healthy People 2010 Initiative. These gaps are seen in overall health, health care service utilization, and access to treatment and prevention. This paper offers a meta-analysis of the competing explanations for health disparities and a framework for assessing the causes of inequity and analyzing the policies aimed at improving social equity in healthcare. Illustrates a rationale for examining the the implementation of equity in healthcare and the epistemology of health disparity that drives policy formulation. Also addressed is the extent to which the policy objectives and capabilities of the policy-makers are aligned.
