Health care disparities and U.S. national public health concerns and disproportionately affect minority populations. Analysis of published studies on the health of larger immigrant populations from Europe, Asia, South American, and the Caribbean revealed a knowledge gap on the health of African and other minority immigrants. This phenomenological study of 11 recent African immigrants concerned access to maternal and child health (MCH) care as well as the causes and effects of disparities to care-seeking experiences. The results may support interventions to improve health care access and health outcomes of minority immigrants in the United States and beyond.
