This graph is titled "Strategies and Practices". The graph depicts a progression of five steps aligned in a row from left to right, with each step identified in a logical progression necessary to effectively address racial/ethnic minority health problems. The first step is entitled "Long-Term Problems". This reflects the need to identify such problems before proceeding to the second step, entitled "Contributing Factors", which must then be identified. The third step is called "Strategies and Practices", which indicates that effective strategies and practices are then needed to address the contributing factors. This step is expanded upon in this graph. The fourth step is entitled "Outcomes and Impacts", which represent the results intended from the strategies and practices. And the last step represents "Long-Term Objectives and Goals", which will be realized if the outcomes and impacts are achieved.
