Health disparities is described as inequalities signified by differences in environment, access, utilization, quality of care, health status, or particular health outcomes. On a variety of health measures, healthcare access and other social determinants of health, minority men fare worse than white men. Nurses have the responsibility to eliminate health disparities among people from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. To do this, nurses must become more knowledgeable about the health disparities among the racial and ethnic groups they serve.
