New report examines rural and urban health disparities

A new report from the Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality (WCHQ) identifies rural and urban disparities in health care and health outcomes to help inform programs working to eliminate health disparities.

The new Health Disparities Report: Rural and Urban Populations expands on the findings from the WCHQ’s earlier 2019 Wisconsin Health Disparities Report. The WCHQ hopes the new report will help health systems, policymakers, and others work together to address health disparities.

Among the report’s findings were lower rates of HPV vaccination in some rural areas, and lower rates of depression screenings in certain urban areas. You can read more about the different categories in the report.
