In 1985, the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released a landmark report documenting the existence of health disparities for minorities in the United States. It called such disparities, “an affront both to our ideals and to the ongoing genius of American medicine.”

In the decades since the release of that report much has changed in our society—including significant improvements in health and health services throughout the nation. This book focuses on a national stakeholder strategy for achieving health equity, and a health and human services action plan to reduce racial and ethnic disparities in health and health care.
