Abstract

In our SLX we specifically talk about race and relating it back to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG) that is Good Health and well being. We go into depth how about race impacts Good health and Well Being to find a problem. The problem we see a lot now days is racial disparites in health care. For example “The uninsured rates for Blacks and Asians were 10.6 percent and 7.3 percent, respectively. Hispanics had the highest uninsured rate (16.1 percent).” We want to create a solution that will help solve the racial disparities in the health care systems in Illinois by creating an innovated idea that will active effect minorites in Illinos. Racial disparity is the imbalance between the treatment of different groups this deals with our topic which is race. The racial disparities in health status are prevalent among different populations in Illinois it mainly exists among people of different racial and ethnic groups. This racial disparity in health status represents our UNSDG which is good health and well-being because of us attempting to find solutions for the racial disparities in our health care in Illinois. Our goal is to find solutions that helps decrease racial disparities in health care in Illinois. The solutions we propose is to create access to minorities because organizing free clinics around Chicago where people can come in and if they need any support with health care and or advice. We also thought of having health care worksers coming into communities with a high population og minorites to retrieve treatment in their house from request. We created these solutions to help find ways to help the population of minorities who are victims of racial disparity in health care in Illinois. By creating these solutions we can correlate to our goal of good health and well-being and in these heavily populated areas of minorities who do not have good access to good health care will be able to have good health and well-being by giving them the opportunity to have access to health care workers that can attend to them.
