The influence of race and gender on the health status of nonwhite women in the United States is the theme of this book. Four distinct groups of women are examined closely: African Americans; American Indians and Alaskan Natives; Asian/Pacific Islander Americans; and Latinas. Contributors focus in particular on structural and cultural factors which affect women's health issues. The concluding chapter calls for the development of new paradigms to improve the delivery of health care for these women and for the US population as a whole.
