One of the most basic principles of public health is that all people have a right to health. Unfortunately, a right to health does not guarantee good health or equivalent health status amongst people. Although the term “disparities” is often interpreted to mean racial or ethnic disparities, many dimensions of disparities exist in the United States, particularly in health. If a health outcome is seen in a greater or lesser extent between populations, there is disparity. Race, ethnicity, sex, sexual identity, age, disability, socioeconomic status, and geographic location all contribute to an individual’s ability to achieve good health.
