Little progress made in reducing health disparities for people with disabilities

Mental distress in people with disabilities is associated with increased prevalence of chronic illness and reduced access to health care and preventive care services, finds a new study. "It's important to find out why there has been so little progress, since the prevention, detection, and treatment of secondary illnesses is critical for health maintenance, halting progression of disability, and helping people with disabilities to participate in life activities," says the lead author.

NB: And with increasing privatisation of the NHS, this will be yet another problem coming our way in the UK too. ​
