    Despite thousands of distinguished doctors of Pakistani origin practicing in the US, Pakistani Americans are among the most deprived of healthcare services. Almost one in four Pakistanis is uninsured and thus enjoys no or limited access to the American healthcare system.
    :laugh::laugh::laugh:


    The data from US Census Bureau reveals that 23 per cent of the 409,000 Pakistanis in the US were uninsured in 2009, making Pakistanis the most uninsured cohort of all Asians in the US. While the number of Pakistanis has doubled in the US between 2001 and 2010, their per capita incomes continue to trail behind Indians and other immigrants from Asian countries, which keep a large cohort of Pakistanis uninsured in the US.

    Immigrants from Pakistan are not alone in the healthcare wasteland in the US. Also performing poorly in healthcare accessibility are immigrants from Bangladesh, Korea, and Cambodia. India-born immigrants fare much better,:cool2::cool2: such that the percent of uninsured Indians in the US is half of that of Pakistanis.
