  1. A research agenda for health education among underserved populations.

    Article - En anglais

    This article summarizes the outcome of health education efforts among populations that, due to their cultural heritage, have received limited services.

    The literature reviewed shows that programs found to be effective in one population cannot be assumed to be equally effective with a different population.

    An argument is made for the design of culturally appropriate and group-specific interventions which would properly serve the various underserved populations.

    Research needs to be conducted to identify appropriate approaches and intervention strategies, as well as the group-specific sociopsychological characteristics (attitudes, norms, values, expectancies) that are related to health-damaging and protective behaviors.
