Abstract

Immigrant Latinas make up one fifth of the total Latino population. Data regarding access to care is limited for this population, specifically undocumented immigrant Latinas. This study incorporates comparative case studies, content analysis, and interviews in order to evaluate access to preventative services for undocumented immigrant Latinas. Three types of facilities were examined for this study: a state based clinic, a community based clinic, and private based clinic. Results indicate undocumented status was not a barrier when seeking preventative services in the state or community clinics; however, only employed undocumented Latinas had access to services in the private clinic.
