Abstract

Research to eliminate health disparities in the United States is best approached from the perspective of population health. The objectives of this paper are to: a) describe how ongoing research at the eight national Centers for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) is using a population health perspective and a community-based approach to advance the field of health disparities research; and b) to discuss potential implications of such research for health policies that target some of the determinants of population health.
