Health care disparities have been described as differences in the quality of care received by those people who have equal access to care and no difference in preferences or needs for treatment representing a serious public health concern. While most literature has shown how ethnic minorities do experience health care disparities and poorer clinical outcomes, inequalities are also encountered according to gender, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, patients in rural areas, or the presence of disabilities.

Abstract

Health care disparities have been described as differences in the quality of care received by those people who have equal access to care and no difference in preferences or needs for treatment representing a serious public health concern. While most literature has shown how ethnic minorities do experience health care disparities and poorer clinical outcomes, inequalities are also encountered according to gender, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, patients in rural areas, or the presence of disabilities.
