Abstract

As the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development's Division of Intramural Population Health Research celebrates its 50th Anniversary, it is appropriate to recognize great achievements in reducing child morbidity and mortality and increasing life expectancy. Unfortunately large racial/ethnic and socioeconomic health and healthcare disparities persist. This commentary suggests a framework to clarify the research and interventions needed to eliminate health disparities starting early in the life course.
