African Americans in Multnomah County are twice as likely to die from diabetes or stroke than white county residents. Hispanic mothers are two times less likely to have early prenatal care white mothers. Native Americans in the county die from HIV at three times the rate of whites.

Multnomah County, through programs like the Health Equity Intitiative, has made signficant progress in addressing health disparities. But as these figures from the County's March 2008 Report Card on Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities show, much work remains to be done. How will the county do this as it struggles with a deepening budget crisis and the economic meltdown worsens the social and environmental factors that influence health equity in our region?

War Crimes and Impunity

program date: 
Wed, 02/25/2009

The Rule of Law.  The idea that the will of the Rulers can be bound by laws. Since the Magna Carta, It's seemed like a pretty good idea.

This show addressed War Crimes and Impunity. Should the Bush administration be held accountable for possible war crimes?  What is the obligation of the Obama administration to restore the rule of law? 

We interviewed Chuck Sudetic co-author of "Madame Prosecutor: Confronting Humanity's Worst Criminals and the Culture of Impunity" and Francis Boyle, University of Illinois law professor and internationally recognized expert on international law and human rights.

Post your comments and questions here. Just because the President does it, doesn't mean it's not illegal.
