dc.description.abstract © 2020 Elsevier Inc. Although effective and low-cost urate-lowering therapy has been available for decades, inequities in gout management exist. Despite high impact of disease, rates of urate-lowering therapy prescription are low in women, in African-Americans in the United States, in Māori (Indigenous New Zealanders), and in Pacific peoples living in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Social determinants of health, barriers to accessing the health care system, health literacy demands, stigmatization, and bias contribute to inequities in gout burden and management. Approaches that focus on building health literacy and delivering culturally safe care lead to improved outcomes in gout, and offer important solutions to achieve health equity.
