About this book

This book comprehensively and thoroughly reviews the current literature regarding the impact of health disparities and socioeconomic factors on allergic diseases outcomes: such as food allergies and anaphylaxis. The morbidity associated with these conditions is significantly higher in under-privileged populations around the world, including groups who have experienced greater social or economic obstacles to health based on racial, socioeconomic, gender, geographic location. Health Disparities in Allergic Diseases presents evidence and reviews studies from both developed and developing countries that witness health disparities in allergic disease.

Concise in format, Health Disparities in Allergic Diseases: An Evidence-Based Look at Causes, Conditions, and Outcomes is made up of 11 expertly written chapters and divided into two parts. It begins with an introductory on global health through an analysis of the theoretical framework of epidemiologic transition. Subsequent chapters then review the socioeconomic and racial variables in treating allergic diseases using a multifactorial approach. Part II discusses disparities in allergic conditions, including asthma health, rhinitis and rhinosinusitis, food allergy, and atopic dermatitis. The book concludes with an exploration of potential strategies to providing solutions for asthmatic impoverished populations.

Health Disparities in Allergic Diseases is a practical resource that can be used by researchers and clinicians in the field of allergy who are interested in learning about health related disparities in the context of allergic conditions or who seek solutions for this important issue.
