englischSocial diversity may affect health outcomes in situations when access to health care is limited for certain social groups. Although non-discriminatory access to healthcare service is one of the basic principles of medical ethics and health law, there are still debates regarding the implementation of this concept in practice. Barriers such as inadequate legal entitlements, language, different concepts of health and disease, socio-economic factors or attitudes of healthcare professionals can hinder equity in access to healthcare. The authors of contributions gathered in this volume analyze challenges in access to healthcare for various minority groups and propose possible solutions.
