The purpose of this study was to access the proportion of population affected
by unmet health care services and needs for 5 years period, gathered from the
sample of homeless women. The authors could gather and analyze data gotten from
966 homeless women that supplied information to the Health Care for the
Homeless User Survey represented 43,000 people. The authors used Multivariable
logistic regression to determine the independent and predictors of the unmet
health care needs. They found out that people who had health insurance where
individuals who were at some point employed from previous years and well off in
the sense of   unmet needs for
medical   and their prescription
medications.  Their findings showed that
access to health care for   homeless women would be better off with
introduction of health insurance expansion on the other hand, also putting into
consideration the challenges homeless women face.

This quantitative study examined health and
health care disparities among homeless Latina, White, African American women.
The purpose of the study was to determine the most-needy within Large and
diverse needy populations and to plan interventions to reduce their health and
health care disparities and sought to provide data to increase understanding of
racial/ethnic disparities among homeless women by comparing African Americans,
Latinas and whites according to a broad range of population, health and health
care measures. The authors found that white, non-Latina women were more likely
to come open about their unmet needs than African Americans and Latinas, and
other homeless women who suffer from one form of drug abuse or the other,
violence, or depression and are the same sample of the population that require
ultimate care. These findings should be considered in targeting and addressing
the special needs of homeless women of different racial/ethnic groups (Teruya et
al 2010) .  They used the recruitment
methods from the participation of presentations for individuals who showed
interested to partake in the research which was made possible with the help of
the research staff and several other groups age bracket 18 years or more but
had homelessness as a requirement for participation.
