Abstract

This article reviews the composition and characteristics of the health professions, the demographics of the national population, and factors that influence access to health care and satisfaction with care for ethnic/racial minority populations in the United States. In addition, an overview of publicly funded US health insurance programs for the poor is provided along with a discussion of the impact that managed care is having on the American health care system. Finally, the paper summarizes conference discussions regarding the problems, strategies, and approaches that the UK and the US have experienced with respect to providing quality health care for ethnic/racial minority populations.
