Despite promulgation of national and international guidelines on the effective management of pediatric asthma, asthma-related morbidity among urban children remains disproportionately high. While there is ample evidence of persistent health disparities by race/ethnicity and income, there is a lack of understanding of the causal mechanism(s) that underlie these disparities. The lack of conceptualization of the relevant causal pathway(s) presents a challenge for the implementation of interventions designed to mitigate the burden of asthma in urban communities.181.
