  • Population health has been defined as "the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group".
  • Population health is an art, process, science and a product of enhancing the health condition of a specific number of people within a given geographical area
  • Population health as an art, simply means that it is geared towards equal health care delivery to an anticipated group of people in a particular geographical location

Health disparities are differences in the incidence, prevalence, and mortality of a disease and the related adverse health conditions that exist among specific population groups.

  • These groups may be characterized by gender, age, race or ethnicity, education, income, social class, disability, geographic location, or sexual orientation.
  • Multiple factors contribute to racial/ethnic health disparities such as  socioeconomic factors, lifestyle behaviors, social environment, and access to preventive health-care services
