Race & Ethnicity Data: Search Results: Reports, Policy Briefs, and Other Resources

This report documents how money spent to advertise soda, candy, snacks and fast foods, dwarfs the dollars spent to promote the California and Federal "5 A Day" programs to encourage eating vegetables and fruits. Written by Consumers Union and CPEHN, this report concludes that this imbalance is one of the key factors contributing to unhealthful dietary trends in the United States that have led to the obesity crisis.

The health system is not doing enough to collect, standardize, and utilize race, ethnicity, and language data to improve our health. Download our report and help make significant advancements in the use of this data to eliminate health disparities.

CPEHN offers an analysis of the reports health plans submitted to Department of Managed Health Care, which found critical limitations, and provides recommendations for improvement.

Funded by the California Program on Access to Care, this study examined the differences in utilization of services, cancer screenings, and chronic disease management among California's racial and ethnic groups in managed care compared with fee-for-service using 2001 CHIS data.

In 2004, CPEHN held convenings in Los Angeles and Oakland to discuss strategies for eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities. At the meetings, participants suggested that CPEHN develop a set of principles to guide efforts to address the systemic injustices and inequities that impact the health communities of color. This document stems from those discussions.

This policy brief discusses social and environmental contributors to the obesity epidemic from the perspective of communities of color, proposes solutions directed at community-level environmental change, and stresses that public policy responses are requisite for addressing this epidemic.

Funded by the California HealthCare Foundation, this project examined whether standardized surveys of consumers' experience and satisfaction with health care could provide useful information on certain dimensions of the cultural competency of health care organizations.

Driven by the imperative to stem increasing health care costs, managed care seeks to save money by “managing” health care utilization and narrowing the choices available to health care consumers. Although both cost-saving strategies are effective, they also present a potential threat to quality of care.

These guiding principles represent the core areas of agreement among CPEHN's multicultural partners and the primary values of our organizations. These principles are used to evaluate various health care reform proposals to ensure that the needs of communities of color are met.
