dc.description.abstractExamining the effects of recent federal budget cuts on the health of the poor, the author reviews available studies of the impact of lack of insurance coverage on the use of health services and of the relationship between health status and access to care. She discusses the growth in numbers of the working poor coinciding with funding cuts in Medicaid, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, and the Women, Infants, and Children nutrition program. Federal agencies that collect health data have also suffered funding cuts but, even with inadequate data, a disturbing picture is emerging of the deteriorating health status of poor children, child-bearing women, and adults with chronic disease. Among the more alarming findings are an increase in the incidence of low birth weight, a slowing of the decline in the infant mortality rate, and a rise in the incidence of preventable childhood disease in some urban populations.
