Description

Utah Health Status by Race and Ethnicity 2015 presents information on "health disparities" as they impact racial and ethnic populations in Utah. A "health disparity" exists whenever the health status on a given measure in one or more racial/ethnic populations is found to be different from other groups. The principal objective of the UDOH Office of Health Disparities (OHD) is to eliminate health disparities that disproportionately impact underserved, underrepresented, and vulnerable populations. This report is intended to serve as a guide for UDOH programs, public health professionals, medical providers, community members, and anyone who is interested in addressing health disparities, to assist in decision-making, planning, and implementation of evidence-based interventions and community-based participatory research.
