Pervasive health disparities and inequalities exist in almost all domains of health. Race, ethnicity, and economic status are among the major source of social inequalities in health. In the United States, African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans have worse health outcomes than other groups. There has been a considerable amount of knowledge generated recently on the mechanisms by which race, ethnicity, and other social determinants of health operate. Still, many un-answered questions remain.
The Special Issue "Social Inequalities and Health Disparities Due to Race, Ethnicity, and Economic Status" invites authors from disciplines such as public health, medicine, economics, psychology, demography, and sociology to submit their original and review articles that are related to inequalities and disparities in health. Papers from United States and all other countries are welcome.

1) Review papers;
2) Theoretical papers;
3) Differential effects, vulnerabilities, and sensitivities to same exposures across groups;
