Health disparities

An example:

“The gap in life expectancy between Black and white Americans has hardly changed in more than 70 years: in 1950, whites lived eight years longer; in 2020, they lived six years longer. African Americans with a college degree or more education have lower life expectancy than whites with a high school degree. What should be done?”

In the next few days, I’ll take a look to see whether it might be possible to apply any of the American lessons in the UK. I too feel that I have nowhere near the level of healthcare access in the UK that I had in the Netherlands, so I also know a little of what is behind these issues. I am going to look whether I can recognise any of it in these American materials so that maybe I can translate it to the UK situation.
