Health Care by Age, Gender, Class & Race -- Research Starters Sociology

Health care in the United States continues to be a challenge. One of the primary concerns in this country is the lack of health care for everyone. There are disparities in the availability of health care for people of various income levels and the care that is available is not necessarily the best. Children and seniors are two of the most vulnerable groups of people in any society. Their health care needs are high, but in the U.S., not all children and seniors have equal access to the same quality of health care. Children of poor, homeless and immigrant families are particularly vulnerable. Health care for women is also a concern; there are millions of women in this country who are going through pregnancy, menopause and other gender-related conditions without any health insurance.
