Welcome to the Hispanic Health Info

Although many facets of the United States’ healthcare delivery system have improved, there are major racial and ethnic disparities in health and healthcare that persist.  Documented disparities in the healthcare delivery system and health have recently incited responses from public and private sectors at the national, state and local levels. National Hispanic Medical Association works closely with the Federal government, Congress, private foundations and other national Hispanic organizations to raise awareness of the racial and ethnic disparities confronted by Hispanics in health and healthcare. Through partnerships with medical and public health organizations, National Hispanic Medical Association seeks to expound the newest knowledge on the delivery system, medical education, policy and communication. It also attempts to advance evidence-based research that promotes interventions that can improve the health of Hispanics. Through the HispanicHealth.Info portal, National Hispanic Medical Association hopes to create a space for its networks to compile information that health professionals can use to better understand how to tackle the health disparities the Hispanic community faces.

This portal is for reference to health professionals. This will contribute to the mission of the National Hispanic Medical Association, which is, “empowering Hispanic physicians to lead efforts to improve the health of Hispanic and other underserved populations in collaboration with Hispanic state medical societies, residents, and medical students, and other public and private sector partners”. This portal provides information of health disparities in the Hispanic population effecting the Hispanic community that more individuals should be knowledgeable about. Therefore, we encourage all health professionals to share this information with their patients.
