Abstract

Disparities in healthcare for culturally diverse populations in the United States lead to poorer health outcomes. This article focuses on decreasing health disparities by improving the quality of care for culturally diverse women. Findings from 3 pilot studies are organized using Fongwa's Quality of Care Model, which demonstrate specific modifications suggested by culturally diverse women that can potentially improve healthcare services for these women.
