Social factors mediating social class differences in blood pressure in a Jamaican community.
Caribbean transformations : contemporary health care systems and their historical antecedents. Symposium. , 1989.
Research on the factors mediating social class differences in blood pressure was carried out in a Jamaican community.
It was found in a previous report that higher social class is related to lower blood pressure for females, while for males higher social class is related to higher blood pressure.
These differences are examined in greater detail here, especially in terms of the historical context of the specific community studied, which is on the fringe of the Kingston urban area, and in terms of the continuing importance of a social class system established under colonial rule.
