Assessing the legacy, impact and remedies racial segregation in American health care
The Foundation's Investigator Awards in Health Policy Research Program was designed to produce major works from senior and new investigators that would add to the health policy field's knowledge base.The purpose of this project is to produce a scholarly monograph that ties together: (1) the history of racial segregation and discrimination in health care; (2) the efforts in the courts and through federal regulations to end segregation beginning in the 1950s; and (3) the persistence of more subtle forms of segregation, particularly in maternal and long-term care where the most dramatic discrepancies in access and outcomes occur. The investigator will also review various current approaches to assuring greater accountability in reducing such continuing discrepancies.
