Description

Mintel explores how Hispanics and Blacks in the U.S. regard their health and what it means to lead a healthy life in these communities. Mintel’s exclusive consumer research examines who Black and Hispanics turn to for advice on health-related issues, their likelihood of using prescription medications and symptom-related OTC products, what they look for when purchasing insurance and their general attitudes toward personal health. This report will take a close look at:

  • Attitudes toward weight and diet
  • Self-perception of health and body image
  • Interest in learning more about health and healthcare products
  • Sources used to learn more about health and healthcare products
  • Likelihood of being insured across income and age demographics
  • What individuals are looking for when purchasing their own insurance
  • OTC products used most often by Black and Hispanic consumers
  • How level of acculturation affects health and healthcare for Hispanic consumers
  • Who is interested in alternative medicines and how that market might be better targeted
  • Importance of pharmacies in the Black and Hispanic communities.
