Racial and ethnic minorities make up an increasingly large proportion of the U.S. population and constitute the majority of residents in certain regions. Historically, people in racial/ethnic minority groups are more likely than non-Hispanic Whites to be poor, to lack a high school education, and to experience disparities in health and health care services.The mission of the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is to improve the quality, safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of health care for all Americans. Toward this aim, AHRQ supports research and other activities designed to improve quality and address disparities in health care for racial and ethnic minorities.
