The plight of Africans today is well-documented and perhaps the biggest campaign ever made for a country against the issue iof poverty and the devastating consequences it has wrought on an entire continent. There is massive prevalence, death and destruction brought on by diseases alone.
This is a human dilemma in a grand scale. There are similar instances as well around the globe though not as readily noticeable as what is happening in Africa; however, the effects are the same and of similar importance. These are evidences of disparities in the area of health and these peoples’ access to services. This paper in precis attempts to explain the concept of health disparities and the results on specific groups.
Whenever health disparities issues are mentioned, this refers to the wide gaps that are present between people in such aspects health in general and health care in particular. It is implicated in the issues that span between people in dissimilar standings concerning socioeconomic status, across ethnic and racial lines.
There are then specific diseases prevalent only to particular groups, the outcomes of their health and the convenience and affordability of care and services concerning health. Minority groups across the United States are the first and most affected with this issue.
They are the African Americans, Latinos, and Asian Americans who comprise the minority populations which dot the landscape lacking sufficient health care (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_disparities).
