Disparities in the quality of care that minority populations receive, even when they have the same insurance, socioeconomic status, and comorbidities as their non-minority counterparts are well documented. Evidence based interventions are an effective tool for reducing health disparities and lowering cost. Therefore, focused quality improvement efforts should be targeted to populations at risk for disparities.

This fact sheet provides resources on how to identify, prioritize, and take action on health disparities by championing the Disparities Action Statement in your organization.
