(p.71) Chapter 3 Profile of Latinos’ Health
Social Work with Latinos

Melvin Delgado

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the health needs of Latinos. Any effort to understand the challenges Latinos face in seeking and obtaining health services to meet their needs must take into account the role of several considerations: (1) rural or urban setting; (2) legal status in this country; (3) command of the English language; (4) gender; (5) social-economic status; and (6) formal educational attainment. The chapter seeks to interject these considerations as an important factor in any effort to assess needs at an individual or community level. It is divided into two main sections: health care, and racism and discrimination.

Keywords:   Latino community, health care, health services, racism, discrimination, social services
