Miles to Go before We Sleep: Racial Inequities in Health
Williams, David R.
Journal of Health and Social Behavior, v53 n3 p279-295 Sep 2012
Large, pervasive, and persistent racial inequalities exist in the onset, courses, and outcomes of illness. A comprehensive understanding of the patterning of racial disparities indicates that racism in both its institutional and individual forms remains an important determinant. There is an urgent need to build the science base that would identify how to trigger the conditions that would facilitate needed societal change and to identify the optimal interventions that would confront and dismantle the societal conditions that create and sustain health inequalities. (Contains 2 tables.)
