Traitement différentiel dans les parcours thérapeutiques

Abstract : Several studies on social disparities in health agree that the analysis of the factors contributing to the production of these disparities conceals a grey area in the study of the quality of health care itself. In other words, once legal and economic obstacles are settled and individuals have access to health care services, is the medical care provided of equal quality for all or does a differential treatment interfere that cannot be explained only by health status ? We will present results from a study dealing with the quality of medical care for patients suffering of HIV-AIDS and/or tuberculosis. This research took place in three public hospitals in Paris. We followed 94 patients receiving medical care and we were able to get a better understanding through their doctors (17) of the motives for therapeutic and clinical decisions. The analysis shows that patients, because of ethnic classification, may receive particular treatment especially regarding their compliance and inclusion in clinical studies.
