Disparities in Public Health Planning
Certain ethnic and racial minorities as well as other underserved populations experience more negative consequences of illness and premature death than other groups.
Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research the disparities in public health planning. Based on your understanding of these disparities, answer the following questions:
- What do the terms “diversity” and “health disparities” mean to you? How are the two terms related?
- How are these terms relevant to health program planning and evaluation?
- How does the cultural diversity of populations affect the program planning and evaluation processes? Explain these in terms of the various stages of the planning and evaluation cycle.
