Cultural Awareness Resources for Professionals
Vulnerable Populations in the United States
Improving the health of vulnerable populations is a national goal, reflected most emblematically by the landmark Healthy People 2010 report and recently in a series of new Institute of Medicine reports. This book provides a cutting-edge introduction to the study and management of those who are most at risk of contracting illness. This book offers a unified approach to the study of vulnerable populations that reflects how public health policy and funding decisions are made; methodically heightens awareness of the challenges we face, and measures the progress being made toward reducing disparities.
