Health and health care disparities are the differences in health care access and outcomes experienced by individuals due to their identity, social and economic status. These disparities can be seen in both the availability and quality of health care services, and in health outcomes. Health and health care disparities are due to a variety of factors, including racism, sexism, ableism, income inequality, and other forms of discrimination. They can have a severe impact on individuals' health and quality of life, and can lead to significant economic costs for society. It is important to address health and health care disparities, so that all individuals have access to quality health care and can experience good health outcomes.
