Men of color in general fare worse than their white counterparts in health, health care access and other social factors that determine health, according to a new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The report, “Putting Men’s Health Care Disparities on the Map: Racial and Ethnic Disparities at the State Level,” examined persistent differences between white men and men of color based on rates of diseases, insurance coverage, health screenings and other factors that influence access to health care, such as income and education.

Report findings showed that black men were seven times more likely than white men to be newly diagnosed with AIDS, and American Indian and Alaska native men had higher rates of health and access problems than men from other racial and ethnic groups. In addition, the study reported that 46 percent of Latino men lacked health insurance and 49 percent lacked a health care provider. What’s more, although white men had better access to health care than minority men, they had higher rates of smoking and binge drinking than men of color.

In addition, Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander men had the lowest rate of health problems and the fewest barriers to health care access of all groups of men studied, including white men.

Connecticut, Maine, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Washington, DC, showed some of the biggest health care access and income disparities between white and minority men.
