Abstract

This chapter examines how domestic and international legal mechanisms can be integrated to use as tools to reduce health care disparities that disproportionately affect people of color. In particular, Professor Majette's chapter examines the multitude of diverse provisions within the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPCA) that have the potential to reduce health disparities, the barriers to implementing the PPACA (constitutional and political challenges), and the moral imperative to reduce health care disparities consistent with global health law norms.
