Black and minority ethnic groups generally have worse health than the overall population, although some groups fare much worse than others, and patterns vary from one health condition to the next. Evidence suggests that the poorer socio-economic position of black and minority ethnic groups is the main factor driving ethnic health inequalities. Several policies have aimed to tackle health inequalities in recent years, although to date, ethnicity has not been a consistent focus. This POSTnote reviews the evidence on ethnic health inequalities, the causes and policy options.
