This chapter argues that contemporary and enlightened multi-ethnic societies should not ignore the issues raised by racial/ethnic variations in health and health care, and should be particularly conscious of the effects on society as a whole of immigration. Topics discussed include historical response to the challenges of minority ethnic group health in the UK, USA, South Africa, the Netherlands, and Australia; the importance of political, social, research, and health care context in the response of countries to the challenge of minority ethnic group health; analysis of the patterns of response and derivation of principles; and the role of research data and routine information systems in guiding a response.
