Disparities In Asthma: Who Is At Risk?
Effective Date: 10/1/2011
Expiration Date: 9/30/2012
Asthma in the United States continues to be characterized by alarmingly persistent, if not increasing, healthcare disparities. Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reviewed asthma prevalence, disease characteristics and self-management education in the United States over the period of 2001 – 2009. The overall prevalence of asthma increased 12.3% from 7.3% (20.3 million persons) in 2001 to 8.2% (24.6 million persons) in 2009. This increase in prevalence was most notable among the young, minorities, women and the poor. Persistent disparities in prevalence, healthcare utilization and morbidity attributable to asthma continue to increase primarily among minority and poor populations. The current review documents these disparities and several areas of investigation into possible associations and mechanisms inherent in these disparities.
