Hispanics living near the Mexican border were less likely to be able to afford dental care – San Diego County (7.9 percent) and Imperial County (9.3 percent) – than non-Hispanic white families statewide (6.3 percent). But Hispanics in Imperial and San Diego counties were less likely to die from lung cancer than whites. These statistics, together with data on demographics, environmental health, influenza, injury, dental health and substance abuse, are gathered in the recently released Border Health Status: Report to the Legislature 2009. The report uses data from the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS). Communities along the California-Mexico border have distinct public health challenges owing to the fluidity of traffic across the border and the complex relationship between the two countries. Health status reports produced by the California Office of Binational Border Health help identify health issues in the region and among its Hispanic population to ensure the effectiveness of disease prevention, surveillance and control efforts.
