It's important for a doctor to know a patient's cultural background. This is mostly to diagnose the patient's condition correctly by reconciling it with their genes and environment. But what if these healers refuse to look past ethnicity?
National health standards advocate for culturally competent care, language services, and organizational support to carry out proper treatment for Latinos in America. According to AFP, people with Mexican or Spanish origins comprise nearly 16% of the population, and this diversity is anticipated to spike up to 30% by 2050.
