520    "According to a recent report from the World Health 
       Organization (WHO) Commission on the Social Determinants 
       of Health, "a girl born in Sweden will live 43 years 
       longer than a girl born in Sierra Leone." The report goes 
       on to observe that "in Glasgow, an unskilled, working-
       class person will have a lifespan 28 years shorter than a 
       businessman in the top income bracket in Scotland" (see 
       Footnote 1, p. 5). Commenting on these sobering statistics
       of health disparities around the world in an invited 
       address, Vicente Navarro (2009) of Johns Hopkins 
       University noted that: the mortality differentials among 
       countries are enormous. But such inequalities also appear 
       within each country, including the so-called rich or 
       developed countries. ... We could add here similar data 
       from the United States. In East Baltimore (where my 
       university, the Johns Hopkins University, is located), a 
       black unemployed youth has a lifespan 32 years shorter 
       than a white corporate lawyer. Actually, as I have 
       documented elsewhere, a young African American is 1.8 
       times more likely than a young White American to die from 
       a cardiovascular condition. Race mortality differentials 
       are large in the US. ... In the same study, I showed that 
       a blue-collar worker is 2.8 times more likely than a 
       businessman to die from a cardiovascular condition. (p. 5)
       The challenges of health disparities for racial and ethnic
       minorities in this country have been publicized in the 
       scientific community by reports such as Unequal Treatment 
       and articles like Navarro's (2009) address. However, much 
       less attention and research have been focused on 
       occupational health disparities (OHDs) among racial and 
       ethnic minority groups. Despite an increasing number of 
       immigrant and nonimmigrant racial and ethnic minorities in
       the United States, little is known about OHDs among these 
       populations. Worker groups in the United States have 
       differential exposure to workplace hazards, and in many 
       cases, these hazards are disproportionately experienced by
       racial and ethnic minorities. As a result, any research 
       and policy efforts to address health disparities among 
       racial and ethnic minorities will also need to address the
       differential impacts of working conditions on their 
       health. These OHDs are exacerbated by barriers resulting 
       from language issues, socioeconomic factors, and cultural 
       beliefs and attitudes. Therefore, a multicultural 
       perspective on OHDs is needed to understand the unique 
       barriers and stressors that they encounter in the 
       workplace. This volume will provide a state-of-the-art 
       review of the literature as well as a road map to guide 
       future research to address the challenges in OHDs among 
       racial and ethnic minorities"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database
