Collection Racial Inequity in Health – Part 1

Clinical research focusing on the specific needs of racial minorities, their health outcomes and disparities has the potential to significantly improve lives in our societies. The eClinicalMedicine Racial Inequity in Health Collection outlines and discusses racial and ethnic inequality across global settings.

This two-part Collection demonstrates that disparities are caused by structural racism and without tailored action the inequalities are maintained and reinforced. By highlighting these issues, we provide practitioners and policy makers with the power to create better, trusted, and fairer healthcare systems for all.

This first part of the Collection highlights relevant research on socioeconomic deprivation, pregnancy outcomes, hepatocellular carcinoma, communicable diseases, and much more.
