Policies, Pills, and Political Will: A Critique of Policies to Improve the Health Status of Ethnic Minorities
Lancet. 1989 Jan 21; 1(8630): 148-150.
According to the 1981 census, 4.2% (2.2 million) of United Kingdom residents were born in the New Commonwealth and Pakistan or were the children of people born in those regions. 1.2 million (2.3%) of the residents were of Asian origin; 40% of those of Pakistani, 39% of Indian, 26% of Bangladeshi, and 27% of East African origin had been born in the UK. The health status of the UK's Asian minorities is poorer than that of the white population. This paper assesses the policies aimed at improving the health experience of these minorities. The implications are not restricted to the UK's Asians but are applicable to other ethnic and disadvantaged groups.
