Abstract: Este artículo identifica y compara las percepciones que tienen dos comunidades urbanas blancas de hispanos/latinos y no hispanos acerca de fuentes de información sobre el consumo de cigarrillo. El autor de este estudio encuestó a 544 hispanos y a 542 hispanos no blancos de San Francisco, California y Houston, Texas para determinar la credibilidad percibida y el poder motivador de 13 diferentes canales de información y de 14 diferentes fuentes de información de fumar cigarrillos. Cuando los datos fueron analizados, se observaron diferencias significativas con base en los niveles de aculturación, género y grupos étnicos. Sin embargo, varias fuentes y canales de información (medios impresos y audiovisuales, médicos, personas con cáncer, amigos y compañeros) fueron vistos positivamente por la mayoría de sujetos en todos los grupos.///This article identifies and compares the perceptions that two communities of urban Hispanics and non-Hispanic whites have regarding of information sources on cigarette smoking.

Abstract: Health needs and appropriate health promotion tactics for Hispanics are very different from those of the non-Hispanic population. At the same time, it is important to avoid the 'minority needs' mindset and assume that programs that work for Blacks and other minority groups will also be appropriate for Hispanics. For example, while pregnant Hispanic women get prenatal care at about the same rate as pregnant African-American women, Hispanic women are less likely to drink alcohol, smoke or use drugs, so infant mortality and low birth-weight rates are much lower. Also, even within the Hispanic population, ethnic subgroups have different needs. (Cuban-American woman are more likely than white women to get adequate prenatal care.) In this article the authors briefly outline the health care needs of Hispanics in the area of prenatal care, childhood health, adolescent health and adult health. The impact of culture on health care and health needs is also addressed.
