In the interest of health promotion, the Center for Black Equity supports all efforts to raise health awareness and improve health outcomes for men of color. Healthy Black Men, in collaboration with a host of other organizations, has put together a series of online community conversations on men’s health during the month of June via Twitter (#BlackMensHealth).
This fact sheet provides an overview of the health of the nation’s 17.3 million African American men, including mortality rates, health status, insurance coverage and access to care. It also provides a snapshot of our population’s socioeconomic factors that relate to health status.
