Disparities in prevalence, disease severity, physical and mental morbidity, and mortality exist in childhood-onset systemic lupus (cSLE) that lead to worse outcomes in children with systemic lupus erythematosus from socially disadvantaged backgrounds. Important gaps exist in knowledge regarding many individual race/ethnicities across the globe, the interaction between race/ethnicity and poverty, and drivers for identified disparities. Large cSLE registries will facilitate investigating disparities in groups of patients that have yet to be identified. Social-ecological models can inform approaches to investigate, monitor, and address disparities in cSLE.
