📙 Blacks and American Medical Care by Max Seham — pdf free


Blacks and American Medical Care was first published in 1974.

In conclusion he writes: ''I think the case is clear: medical care equality is not only an urgent national need but a moral necessity. The choices this nation makes in the allocation of its resources reflect our system of values. We are indicating our priorities through this allocation, and thus far we have a far from acceptable record in total national health achievements. The mortality, morbidity, and general health statistics of the poverty-stricken, minority groups of our country give evi
