Eliminating health disparities is the second goal of Healthy People 2010. Health disparities are recognized in segments of the population and may include differences by ethnicity or race, gender, geographic location, education or income, disability and sexual orientation. Improving quality of care is an approach to reducing health disparities. The purpose of this presentation is to use a quality of care framework to review findings from three pilot studies that culturally tailored guidelines from the Put Prevention into Practice Program for ethnically diverse women. The intent is to use the Fongwa Quality of Care model to organize these findings and suggest ways to improve the structure and processes in health care systems to decrease health disparities. Implications for practice will focus on linking health outcomes to improved health structures and processes.
