Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Large and persistent racial and ethnic health disparities persist across a range of health outcomes.  Racism and other social determinants of health impact access to resources and opportunities and differentially influence the exposure to risk and protective factors. Interventions are needed to reduce racial and ethnic health inequities. This Special Issue focuses on interventions to promote health equity among racially minoritized populations.

Some possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Evaluation of interventions to decrease the risk of adverse health outcome among racially minoritized populations;
  • Evaluation of policies that directly or indirectly impact the health of racially minoritized populations;
  • Assessment of changes in racial and ethnic health inequities over time as a result of an event, intervention, or policy change;
  • Description/study design or the feasibility, acceptability of an intervention to reduce racial and ethnic health inequities;
  • Scaling up of an intervention to reduce racial and ethnic health inequities;
  • Training of communities to address health issues;
  • Community needs assessments to seek knowledge and an understanding of community needs and solutions from community members and community organizations.

Dr. Thu Thi Xuan Nguyen
Guest Editor
