Summary of "Comparisons between ethnic groups in hospitalizations for respiratory syncytial virus bronchiolitis in Israel."

Ethnic disparities have been shown in respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) bronchiolitis. However, it is unclear whether such differences are related to access to care. We compared demographic and clinical characteristics of Arab and Jewish children hospitalized for RSV bronchiolitis in Israel, a country with universal health insurance.
