World Streets and vulnerable populations
Vulnerable populations include the economically disadvantaged, racial and ethnic minorities, the uninsured, low-income, children, the elderly, the homeless, those with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and those with other chronic health conditions, including severe mental illness. It may also include rural residents, who often encounter barriers to accessing healthcare services.
The vulnerability of these individuals is enhanced by race, ethnicity, age, sex, and factors such as income, insurance coverage (or lack thereof), and absence of a usual source of care. Their health and healthcare problems intersect with social factors, including housing, poverty and inadequate education.
And of course fair mobility.
Some wonderful things are being done in different parts of the world to give these people, — children of course but also adults and the aged — a fair chance at a full life. It helps to know about them the problems faced and the strengths and eventual problem areas. World Streets regularly reports on and comments on innovations and solutions world-wide.
