CDC Releases First Periodic Health Disparities & Inequalities Report

ASIA is pleased to share the first Health Disparities & Inequalities Report from the CDC.  The report features the often overlooked health disparities of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

The CDC Health Disparities and Inequalities Report, 2011, is the first in a series of periodic, consolidated assessments that highlight health disparities by sex, race and ethnicity, income, education, disability status and other social characteristics in the U.S.

The report provides analysis and reporting of the recent trends and ongoing variations in health disparities and inequalities in selected social and health indicators, both of which are important steps in encouraging actions and facilitating accountability to reduce modifiable disparities by using interventions that are effective and scalable.”
