Ethnic minorities across the world face health inequalities. Ethnic minority patients' experiences in Western nations have been the subject of a significant deal of research. The eastern world, on the other hand, is still lacking in such information. This information is crucial in Asia, as many locations are growing increasingly multi-ethnic and multicultural in recent years. When it comes to outpatient and hospital treatment, comparing minority patients' experiences with those of ethnic majority persons can prove beneficial. Quantitative as well as qualitative approaches were combined in my study. First, I conducted focus group talks with 30 South Asian women and conducted interviews with 22 healthcare professionals to gather information about their experiences (doctors, nurses and pharmacists). On top of that, I performed a cross-sectional survey with 575 South Asians and 494 Chinese individuals using the WHO health system responsiveness, Picker patient experience (PPE-15), and Veteran Rand 12-item (VR-12) questionnaires.
