Abstract

Health equity is attained when everyone has the opportunity achieve the health they envision; however, health disparities are a barrier to health equity. As health disparities specific to urogynecology exist, it is critical to examine and contextualize them in a framework that improves understanding of what factors may drive these disparities to craft effective solutions. This article will review what we currently know about urinary incontinence disparities and provide a framework for evaluation as well as a framework for advancing health equity in the care of diverse patient populations with urinary incontinence.
