There are concerns about the poor health and prevalence of chronic illness among a number of ethnic minority populations. There are also debates about how best to improve the situation. For some, the answer is to see their experiences as part of the general social class inequality in health. However recent evidence questions the extent to which social class can explain the variations in health which ethnic minorities experience. "Researching cultural differences in health" offers a range of accounts of how people in ethnic minority groups perceive and manage their illness. Some of the chapters focus on Bangladeshi, and other South Asian groups, as well as Afro-Caribbeans and Irish people. The illnesses discusses include diabetes, hypertension, sickle-cell disorder, mental illness and coronary heart disease.
