  • Note from the Editor
    • Abstract: If I had many who oppose me, it means I have stood for something sacred that only my heart knows.In its very name, this journal claims its status as a platform for oppositional work: We cannot use the word underserved without implicitly bringing to mind the antonymous notion of a world-ful of people, all of them well-served and equally well-served. So, JHCPU, implicitly, strikes its position as a member of the opposition to the status quo when it comes to health and health care. We understand the status quo not simply to include some social (and health-related) inequity, but to be deeply inequitable along multiple human dimensions (including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual identity, disability status, language ...

  • The Undocumented Elderly: Coverage Gaps and Low Health Care Use
    • Abstract: Since 1990, the undocumented immigrant population has risen steadily; as of 2015, there were 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.1 Nearly 60% of these immigrants have lived in the U.S. for at least 10 years, and over a third live at or above 200% of the federal poverty level.2 Though they represent an increasingly large subset of the population, undocumented immigrants are often unaccounted for by the health care system. Overall, they are far less likely to be insured than U.S. citizens: between 40% and 61% of undocumented immigrants are uninsured,2,3 compared with only 10% of citizens.3 Undocumented immigrants are also more likely to face barriers in accessing care and to report lower use of ...

  • Autism Spectrum Disorders in Nigeria: A Scoping Review of Literature and
           Opinion on Future Research and Social Policy Directions
    • Abstract: The notion that Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may be a disorder of highly industrialized and developed countries that Sanua1 once posited has now been debunked. Instead, ASD is now universally considered a neurodevelopmental disorder that can occur across cultures and geographical regions. Of more than two billion children and adolescents worldwide under 15 years, over 90% live in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) (Figure 1: World Bank Population 0–14 years, % of total, by country).2 Knowledge and research about ASD globally is highly important and hasbeen continually growing over the last four decades, including research on populations in sub-Saharan Africa, albeit at a much slower pace than research on ...

  • Barriers and Strategies for Specialty Care Access through Federally
           Qualified Health Centers: A Scoping Review
    • Abstract: About 9% of the United States population was uninsured in 2015.1 Lack of health care insurance in the United States represents a barrier to receiving care.2 Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) are federally funded non-profits that provide health care services to vulnerable populations, regardless of a patient's ability to pay and including those with no health insurance and low economic resources.3,4 In 2016, 92% of 25 million FQHC patients had officially low incomes.5 Within the insured population, many patients are underinsured with high deductibles, high out-of-pocket costs, and narrow provider networks that severely limit an individual's access to affordable care.6 In 2016, 23% of FQHC patients were ...

  • Creating Culturally-Specific and Community-Specific Approaches to Linking
           Low Socioeconomic Smokers to Cessation Services
    • Abstract: Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States.1 While the overall smoking rate has steadily declined, rates remain alarmingly high for some populations, including those of low socioeconomic status (low SES). Nationally, the adult smoking rate was 15.5% in 2016, a significant decline from 20.9% in 2005. When looking at smoking using income and education as SES indicators, the picture is starkly different. In 2016, 25% of those living below the federal poverty level smoked; the smoking rate for adults with 12 or fewer years of education was 24%. This compares with 14.3% of adults living at or above the federal poverty line, 7.7% of adults with an undergraduate degree and ... Read More

On a single night in 2017, it was estimated that roughly 550,000 Americans were homeless, 35% of whom were unsheltered.1 These individuals have limited access to on-going health care while at the same time are more likely to experience unsanitary conditions, poor nutrition, and exposure to communicable disease.2,3 Consequently, chronic medical conditions in the homeless population are not only prevalent, but are often poorly identified and managed.4 Studies in the United States associate homelessness with increased rates of mortality,5 mental health diseases,6 chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases,7 infectious diseases,8–10 and foot ...

  • Managed Care Experiences of Medicaid Enrollees with Disabilities: A
           Qualitative Analysis of Consumer Survey Responses
    • Abstract: Complex medical needs and increased spending for Medicaid enrollees with disabilities have prompted many states to transition these populations into systems of managed care.1,2,3,4,5 The goals of managed care—conserving program costs while improving service quality and the overall health of users6—are attractive to states wishing to reign in Medicaid expenditures while maintaining standards of quality. Almost 77% of the 71 million individuals receiving Medicaid services in the US were enrolled in a form of managed care in 2014,7 and over half of all states use managed care to deliver long-term services and supports (LTSS) for at least some Medicaid enrollees.8,9Managed care may stabilize individual costs and ...

  • Availability of Health Care Provider Offices and Facilities in Minority
           and Integrated Communities in the U.S.
    • Abstract: Despite historic economic and health policy changes in recent years (such as the Great Recession associated with the financial downturn in 2008 and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010), studies have found racial and ethnic disparities in the use of medical, dental, and mental health services.1–4 Prior research has linked residential segregation with lower levels of ambulatory service use,5 lower outpatient surgery volume,6 and lower rates of transplantation and longer time to transplant.7 Given the persistent and wide-ranging health care disparities observed, it is possible that the care environment within minority communities is a significant contributor to these disparities.Previous research ...

  • A Community-Based Approach to HIV Prevention: Engaging Mayan Young Adults
           in Rural Guatemala
    • Abstract: Indigenous Mayans represent nearly 40% of the Guatemalan population and constitute a fifth of HIV cases,1,2 although taking underreporting into account suggests the number of HIV cases is 50–70% higher.3,4 Recent research echoes the same problem, noting an increase in HIV-positive patients in the Guatemalan rural highlands, pointing to indicators of migration and interpersonal violence that link to infidelity and low condom use (HIV risk factors), and call for more research on the Mayans' susceptibility to HIV.5–7 This vulnerable population is also marginalized and excluded from the social policies of basic health services, including the Guatemalan national strategic plan on sexually transmitted infections (STIs) ...

  • Addressing Tobacco Cessation at Federally Qualified Health Centers:
           Current Practices & Resources
    • Abstract: Smoking is the leading cause of preventable death from cancers, heart disease, and respiratory illnesses in the United States (U.S.) and smoking tobacco and use of smokeless tobacco remain a significant public health concern.1,2 While significant progress has been made in the reduction of tobacco use over the last decade, 15.5% of the adult population in 2016 continued to smoke.3 Importantly, the gains made in tobacco control and prevention are not equally distributed among subpopulations. Tobacco use remains high among people living below the poverty level, those with lower levels of education, and among certain racial and ethnic minority groups.2 Socially and economically disadvantaged groups have lower cessation ...

  • Tobacco Smoking, Substance Use, and Mental Health Symptoms in People with

    • Abstract: The prevalence of tobacco smoking among people with HIV (PWH) ranges from 40% to 70% in the U.S., compared with a prevalence in the U.S. general population of around 15.5%.1–8 Despite this increased rate of smoking, PWH are about 20% less likely to quit smoking than other U.S. adults.1 With antiretroviral therapy (ART) resulting in durable viral suppression and improved long-term survival, smoking-related illnesses account for a significant proportion of the excess morbidity and mortality among PWH. There is a higher prevalence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and respiratory symptoms among PWH compared with other individuals matched by age and sex.9 Smoking also significantly increases the risk of ...

           Humility in Mobile Health Clinic Services for Underserved Minority
           Populations
    • Abstract: Research1 has shown that the U.S. falls short in delivering effective primary and secondary prevention for patients with chronic conditions, and that patients face barriers in accessing effective primary and secondary prevention services. Due to these access barriers, Americans seek a significant amount of non-emergent care in emergency departments (ER), with long waits to be seen,2 and associated high costs for uninsured or underinsured patients. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) includes a mandate to practitioners to focus on "developing approaches to engage and monitor patients outside of the office."3[p.537] Mobile health clinics (MHCs) are a viable mechanism for reaching out to patients outside of formal health ...

           Hyperlipidemia among Refugees in Buffalo, New York, 2004–2014
    • Abstract: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, are the leading causes of death in the world.1 Worldwide, NCDs are responsible for more than 63% of mortality, and as much as 85% of the premature deaths that occur in developing countries.1 In the U.S., diabetes alone affects 29.1 million (9.3%) adults and costs $245 billion a year, with 41.2% of diabetes cases being uncontrolled.2 Hypertension and hyperlipidemia are major risk factors for NCDs. Hypertension affects 29.0% of adults in the U.S., and nearly half (47%) of these patients have uncontrolled blood pressure.3 Approximately 79 million U.S. adults are estimated to have high blood cholesterol levels.4 Although treatment of ...

  • Effect of Implementation of Free Maternity Policy on Selected Maternal and

    • Abstract: The World Health Organization (WHO) defines maternal death as the death of a woman while pregnant or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy, irrespective of the duration and site of the pregnancy, from any cause related to or aggravated by the pregnancy or its management (from direct or indirect obstetric death), but not from accidental or incidental causes.1 The most recent published maternal mortality estimates indicate that in 2015, 303,000 women globally died from complications related to pregnancy and childbirth.2 Low-and middle-income countries account for 99% of these maternal deaths.3 The sub-Saharan Africa region has the highest maternal mortality ratio (MMR) (500/100,000).4 This is about 42 times ...

    • Abstract: Lassa fever is a viral hemorrhagic fever caused by Lassa fever virus.1 It is one of the contributors to the fatal threat of emerging infections.2 Lassa fever is endemic in West Africa and kills tens of thousands each year. It was first described in 1950s and isolated in 1969 in Lassa village, Borno state, Nigeria.3,4 It is a zoonotic disease with multimammate rat (mastomys natelensis) as the natural host.4 It is transmitted to humans through contact with food or household items contaminated with rat urine or feces. Secondary person-to-person transmission occurs in communities and hospitals (nosocomial infection) through contact with bodily secretions of infected people.5 The incubation period of Lassa fever is 2 to ...

  • Socioeconomic Risk Factors for Plasmodium falciparum Infection in Primary
           School Children in Three Districts of the Volta Region Of Ghana
    • Abstract: Malaria is a mosquito-borne parasitic disease caused by the protozoan Plasmodium. Malaria affects a significant portion of the world's population with two million cases and over 500,000 deaths per year.1,2 The epidemiology of this disease is grossly influenced by factors that influence the growth, survival, and availability of the parasite and its vector.3 Climatic factors such as rainfall, temperature, and vegetation propel the spread of malaria infections in tropical regions.4,5,6However, another characteristic common to most of these malaria endemic tropical areas is low socioeconomic status (SES).2 Factors such as poor housing, low-paying occupations, and rural dwelling places play considerable roles in causing ...

  • At-Risk Stakeholder Behavior Change with Community-Based Health Events
    • Abstract: Community-based health events, also known as health fairs, have been the traditional stalwart of American health interventions for over a century. Health fairs usually offer marketing or outreach from particular health-related organizations,1 specific screening tests such as blood pressure, blood glucose, serum lipids, or prostate-specific antigen to both symptomatic and asymptomatic community stakeholders, wellness promotion, and educational materials to promote awareness of preventable or treatable illnesses with high morbidity or mortality. An additional benefit, participating clinicians can provide heath event services across a variety of health disciplines. These interventions typically convene in ... Read More

    • Abstract: The quality of any clinician's work life affects matters far beyond that clinician's personal happiness. This is true for clinicians serving in the National Health Service Corps (NHSC), who provide care to socioeconomically challenged patients in chronically understaffed clinics and under-resourced communities. Like all clinicians, those in the NHSC who are happy in their jobs can be expected to provide better quality care, communicate better with patients, and have happier patients who are more likely to follow recommended care than clinicians who are not happy in their jobs.1–5 Also like all clinicians, NHSC practitioners doing work they find satisfying are less likely than others to leave their practices, which ...

    • Abstract: Designing, implementing, and sustaining interventions that address health disparities are critical tasks for promoting health equity. However, a persistent challenge for researchers is demonstrable long-term sustainability of successful intervention studies after the initial research grant funding ends.1–3 Effective planning for sustaining successful health disparities interventions beyond the grant-funding period is one method to overcome this challenge.4,5 Sustainability, which is defined by Scheirer and Dearing as "the continued use of program components and activities for the continued achievement of desirable program and population outcomes"6[p.2060] promotes long-term community health improvements; ...
