New Resources--Latest Reports in Health Policy

Recently published special editions of the journals Health Promotion Practice (http://hpp.sagepub.com/current.dtl) and Health Education & Behavior (http://heb.sagepub.com/current.dtl), which are published by the Society for Public Health Education (http://www.sophe.org/), focus on approaches to reducing racial and ethnic health disparities.

The August 2006 issue of HEB includes several articles encouraging a
multi-disciplined approach to addressing the cultural, economic,
political and social context of factors that contribute to racial and
ethnic health disparities.

The July 2006 issue of Health Promotion Practice examines how
approaches to funding, politics and policy can impact health
disparities (August 2006, Health Education & Behavior and July
2006, Health Promotion Practice).
