“Health Equity for All”

Health issues that lower both life expectancy and quality of life disproportionately affect the African-American community. The HIV epidemic, terminal cancers, diabetes, and childhood obesity all disproportionately affect the African-American community. The CBC Healthcare Task Force works to improve the health, healthcare, and wellbeing of all Americans, especially low-income Americans and those of color. The Task Force advocates for research and outreach efforts that combat health disparities and help equip Americans with the information they need to live healthier lives. Robust funding for the National Institutes of Health and the Offices of Minority Health are critical to that mission. The Task Force also supports policies that strengthen racial diversity in the health workforce and clinical trials.
