The Ending Unequal Treatment report found that people of color in 2024 are still disproportionately uninsured, underutilizing care services and underrepresented in the healthcare workforce. The report is funded by the National Institutes of Health and Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and is a follow up to the academies' 2003 study on pervasive inequities in care access, coverage and treatment between patients of color and their white peers.
