The Arkansas Minority Health Commission (AMHC) was established in 1991 to assure that all Arkansans have equal access to quality health care, regardless of race or ethnicity and to eliminate racial and ethnic health disparities in Arkansas. The Commission supports its mission through: 1) studying diseases prevalent in racial and ethnic minority populations and issues related to minority health care access and service delivery; 2) identifying any gaps in the state's health care delivery system that particularly affect minorities; and 3) recommending policy changes to relevant agencies and the Arkansas legislature to improve health and healthcare delivery and access for racial and ethnic minorities.
