In the past decade, issues of discrimination based on culture and race have risen to the surface in many countries worldwide, along with a growing nationalist movement that rejects "the other." Articles in this issue of ANS address these factors as they influence health and well-being of individuals, groups and communities, and the delivery of nursing and heatlhcare in culturally diverse communities.
We invite you to explore the contents of this issue, and to follow the ANS Journal blog where we post messages from the authors giving more background about their work! We always welcome your comments in response to any ANS articles!
