Using clear graphics, the video depicts evident health disparities between the underprivileged and the affluent. Overall, the underprivileged group has higher infant mortality rates, more frequent and longer hospital stays, and contains more single-parent households. Members of this group are more likely to experience developmental delays in childhood, food insecurity, and have lower self-perceived mental and physical health.
The underprivileged group also contains fewer high school graduates and consequently holds slimmer job prospects, lower salaries, and harsher working conditions. Unequal closes by imagining the unmet potential of the underprivileged group brought on by the social inequalities outlined in the video.
Socioeconomic variations in the course of stroke: unequal health outcomes, equal care?
Summary The American health care system is a unique mix of public and private programs that critics argue has produced a two-tier system - one for the rich and the other for the poor - that delivers dramatically unequal care and leaves millions of Americans seriously underinsured or with no coverage at all. This book examines the root causes of the inequalities of the American health care system and discusses various policy alternatives. It systematically documents the demands on and the performance of our health care system for different population groups as defined on the basis of gender women , age children , race and ethnicity African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans , and residence in high poverty areas rural and inner city locales.
For each population, the book documents: historical and demographic profile, data on health status, aspects of inequality including access; quality of care; and endemic, cultural, and lifestyle issues affecting health; policies, laws, and programs relevant to health care; and, indicators of improvement or negative trends.
