Through this work, the Center has found that if you are black or poor or female—and in pain—your chances are diminished for receiving adequate treatment and pain management. This is disparity of healthcare.
Many healthcare studies indicate unequal treatment due to discrimination based on differences of race or ethnicity, income, gender, age, and location. Approximately 15% of the U.S. population is medically uninsured. Lack of insurance creates an access problem which is another significant disparities issue.
