Abstract

The New Mexico Department of Health is pleased to present the “Health Disparities Report Card.” This Report Card is funded by a State Partnership Grant to Improve Minority Health from the US Department of Health and Human Services. It is intended to be a reference document that will raise awareness about health disparities and help us to better focus our efforts and monitor our progress as we work to improve the health of all racial and ethnic groups in New Mexico. With this report card, New Mexico will join the ranks of only a few states that have developed a focused report card. Health disparities are the differences in health and the impact of diseases on different race and ethnic groups. We know that in New Mexico there are many factors that contribute to health disparities including: access to health care, behavioral choices, genetic predisposition, poverty, environmental and occupational conditions, language barriers, social and cultural factors and discrimination in the health care setting.
