  • Note from the Editor
    • Abstract: As we move ahead into the brave new world of 2017 and beyond, we seek to advance the well-being of underserved populations by establishing the effectiveness of strategies for advancing health equity, baseline health studies in developing countries, and underserved patient perspectives on their health needs. Brief summaries of the papers in this issue appear below.A supplement Guest Edited by Dr. Lorece Edwards (Morgan State University) and Dr. Ronald Braithwaite (Morehouse School of Medicine) and supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) accompanies the regular issue.

  • Exploring the Case for Eminent Domain of Hepatitis C Virus Treatment
           Patents
    • Abstract: The United States spent $373.9 billion on medications in 2014, up 13.1% from the previous year, including the addition of $11.3 billion on just four new hepatitis C virus (HCV) therapies.1 Over 161,000 patients were started on HCV medications in 2014, increasing from just 17,000 receiving treatment just one year earlier.1 Hepatitis C virus is estimated to affect approximately 1% of the population in the United States, meaning three to four million Americans.2,3 The disease's impact on federal and state government budgets with respect to the uninsured, Medicare and Medicaid recipients, and incarcerated populations is well documented.4,5 In 2009, there were over 400,000 patients with a diagnosis of HCV enrolled in ...

  • Effective Strategies for Affordable Care Act Enrollment in
           Immigrant-Serving Safety Net Clinics in New Mexico
    • Abstract: From the time it was first introduced in September 2009, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010 has been seen as a means of reducing disparities in health care by extending access to underserved populations. Yet immigrants—who are disproportionately affected by health disparities1—are differentially eligible for coverage depending on their immigration status. Unauthorized (undocumented) immigrants and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients are excluded from purchasing coverage through the Health Insurance Exchange Market and do not qualify for the Medicaid expansion. Lawfully present immigrants (lawful permanent residents, those with temporary protected status, and ... Read More

  • Improving Diabetic Retinopathy in an Indigent Population
    • Abstract: Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the leading cause of preventable blindness in working-age American adults.1 Diabetic retinopathy is a specific microvascular complication of diabetes mellitus (DM) and affects one in three people with DM. Approximately 4.1 million U.S. adults 40 years and older have diabetic retinopathy; one of every 12 people with DM in this age group has advanced, vision-threatening retinopathy.2 Vision loss can be minimized with strict glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol control and timely ophthalmologic care.3 The discrepancy between optimal and actual care constitutes a "quality chasm" and emphasizes the need for more innovative approaches to access quality care in the rural setting.4The early ...

  • Innovative Program Delivery and Determinants of Frequent Visitation to a
           Mobile Medical Clinic in an Urban Setting
    • Abstract: Mobile medical clinics (MMCs) are innovative health care delivery programs that provide care to medically underserved populations. They are effective strategies to overcome barriers to health care, including geographical, structural, and social limitations in rural and urban settings, both domestically and abroad.1–6 They have also been demonstrated to be culturally competent7–9 and financially acceptable10 to marginalized populations and are sites of triage and early intervention. The Mobile Health Map Project estimates that there are more than 1,500 MMCs across North America operated by hospital systems, universities, and non-profit organizations to provide prevention, diagnostic, and treatment services to over ...

  • What Makes Patient Navigation Most Effective: Defining Useful Tasks and
           Networks
    • Abstract: Disparities in cancer outcomes that disfavor racial and ethnic minority and low-income populations have been well documented, and in some instances, the gap seems to be widening.1,2 Patient navigation was devised as a strategy to address barriers to obtaining care and thereby eliminate disparities in cancer outcomes.3 Patient navigation facilitates access to quality cancer care by providing one-on-one guidance and support to identify and reduce barriers to ensure timely access to high quality care for vulnerable populations.4,5In 2006 the National Cancer Institute with additional support from the American Cancer Society and the Avon Foundation funded the Patient Navigation Research Program (PNRP), a multi-center ...

  • New York Community Health Centers' Population Health Activities: Findings
           from a Statewide Assessment
    • Abstract: United States health care expenditures reached 2.9 trillion dollars in 2013, equivalent to 17.4% of the gross domestic product.1 The magnitude of the investment notwithstanding, just 5% of the total spent on health care is dedicated to population approaches to reducing morbidity and mortality even as 40% of preventable deaths are caused by modifiable behavioral risk factors and another 15% by similarly modifiable social conditions (e.g., unemployment, poverty).2,3 Medical care may have limited impact on the overall health of the population given that only 10–15% of preventable mortality is achievable through medical interventions.3–6 Consequently, there appears to be little alignment between the financial ...

  • Assessment of Hypertension Management and Outcomes at an Indianapolis
           Student-Run Free Clinic
    • Abstract: Hypertension is an important modifiable risk factor for vascular disease in the United States and is associated with overall decreased life expectancy.1,2,3,4 Hypertension affects nearly one third of the United States population5 and imposes an economic burden of tens of billions of dollars annually.6 Numerous studies have demonstrated the benefit of hypertension control in reducing vascular disease complications.1,2 Whether a patient with hypertension can achieve and maintain disease control depends on a number of biological, social, and economic factors. As might be expected, access to health insurance and a usual source of health care are associated with increased rates of hypertension control.5Access to health ... Read More

  • Socio-Demographic Characteristics, Partner Characteristics, Socioeconomic
           Variables, and Intimate Partner Violence in Women with Schizophrenia in
           South-South Nigeria
    • Abstract: Globally, violence against women with mental illness has become a major public health concern.1 Women with mental illnesses such as schizophrenia are at high risk of violence in intimate relationships.2–4 Such women are sometimes perpetrators of violence, but more often victims.3 Research has shown that females with chronic mental illness usually have higher risk of being victims than women in general.5 In most cases, the estimates reported reflect a gross underestimation due to the perceived consequences of public disclosure (such as stigmatization and public shame).6Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a pattern of assaultive and coercive behaviors, encompassing physical, sexual, and psychological attacks, as well ...

  • Clinical Correlates of Treatment Response among Patients with
           Schizophrenia in a Tertiary Nigerian Hospital
    • Abstract: Schizophrenia is a severe mental disorder that most commonly affects young people. The outcomes for patients vary, but the course of the illness is usually chronic, often marked with periods of relapse despite treatment. Kolakowska et al.1 studied neuroleptic response over multiple treatment episodes. They carefully classified 61 patients with schizophrenia into good responders, partial responders, and poor responders. The 21 good responders had had two to seven psychotic episodes, in which improvement occurred within a few weeks of neuroleptic treatment. Among the 15 partial responders, 12 showed consistently incomplete responses to neuroleptic treatment, and three changed from having an initial good response to ... Read More

  • Close Together, Far Apart: an Assessment of the Public Health Needs of
           Three Geographically Proximate Communities in Central Haiti
    • Abstract: Prior to the 2010 earthquake, it was reported that there were as many as 10,000 nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) working in Haiti.1 In the weeks following the earthquake, 150 health facilities were established, and an estimated 400 humanitarian groups, in addition to the United Nations and the international community, began Haitian operations.2 Many different aid organizations are still present in Haiti and reflect an assortment of organizational structures, capabilities, goals, and perspectives. While the work that they have accomplished and the services that they continue to provide are at times successful and often admirable, the patchwork nature of these actors can produce disjointed, inefficient results ...

  • The Effect of Childhood Household Dysfunction on Future HIV Risk among
           Probationers
    • Abstract: Justice-involved individuals have a number of characteristic health challenges. For instance, justice-involved individuals are two to five times more likely to be diagnosed with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) than the general population.1 According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),2 one in seven people who are diagnosed with HIV pass through the criminal justice system each year. Previous research has identified numerous possible reasons for this increased risk of HIV incidence among offenders including substance abuse, commercial sex work and risky sexual behaviors, mental health issues, poor peer support networks, poverty, and poor access to ...

  • "I Need my Own Place to get Better": Patient Perspectives on the Role of
           Housing in Potentially Preventable Hospitalizations
    • Abstract: In the United States, 10% of all hospitalizations are considered potentially preventable, defined as admissions for acute or chronic illness complications that might not have required hospitalization with successful management in primary care.1 Congestive heart failure (CHF) and diabetes mellitus (DM) are leading causes of these potentially avoidable hospitalizations.1 Often termed "ambulatory care sensitive conditions," these hospitalizations are the focus of considerable research and policy attention."1–3Studies identifying reasons for preventable hospitalizations are critical to the development of interventions to reduce the number of future admissions, thus reducing costs and improving outcomes for patients.4 ...

    • Abstract: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 600,000 Americans every year, and often burdening individuals with serious illness, disability, decreased quality of life, and financial stress.1,2 Minority groups, including Latinos, experience increased rates of CVD and CVD risk factors such as hypertension, inactivity, obesity, and diabetes, compared with other racial/ethnic groups in the U.S.2 Latinos are 15% more likely to be obese and 65% more likely to have diabetes than non-Hispanic Whites.3 Furthermore, similar to the general population, as of 2013, approximately one-third of Latino men (33.4%) and women (30.7%) age 20 years and older were diagnosed with ...

  • Self-perceived Income Sufficiency and Self-reported Income Level among a
           Health Inequity Population
    • Abstract: Assessing individuals' perceptions of their income sufficiency (i.e., subjective income) is important for theoretical and practical reasons. Despite the well-documented association between health status and income,1 we know little about the relationship between health status and self-perceived income sufficiency. An improved understanding of the relationship between how people think about their income and their objective income addresses fundamental behavioral economics issues, including questioning the assumed association between low income and perceived income insufficiency. On the practical side, for individuals reluctant to reveal their income level, self-perceived income sufficiency may serve as a palatable ... Read More

  • Humanitarian Negotiations Revealed: The MSF Experience ed. by Claire
           Magone, Michaël Neuman, and Fabrice Weissman
    • Abstract: German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, executed by the Third Reich in early 1945, is renowned for stating, "Silence in the face of evil is itself evil." In Humanitarian Negotiations Revealed: The MSF Experience this is precisely the issue at hand. Three Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) insiders who either currently or previously worked for the medical NGO edit the volume, and current and former MSF employees contribute to the essays. The case studies that are examined and the commentary reveal a side of MSF that is often hidden by the organization's humanitarian undertakings. A complex system of compromises and politics is exposed as MSF attempts to navigate the rough seas of humanitarian aid in the midst of bitter ... Read More
