Abstract

Disaggregated data, vital statistics, and a comprehensive literature review were used to assess the relationship between Hawaiian maternal predictors and infant health outcomes. Despite near universal health care coverage, Hawaiians continue to use less prenatal care, have average rates of low birth weight and the highest infant mortality rates compared to other ethnic groups in Hawaii. Specific investigations and interventions are necessary to reduce the disparity of Hawaiian infant health outcomes.
