Eliminate Health Disparities and Racism
BLACK MEN ARE:
More likely to receive POORER Quality Care when compared to White Men
30% MORE LIKELY to die from heart disease than White men
60% MORE LIKELY to die from stroke than White men
9 TIMES MORE LIKELY to die from HIV than White men
2.5 TIMES HIGHER prostate cancer mortality rate than White men
The mission of The African American Male Wellness Agency is to develop, expand, support, and sustain the education and awareness of the inequalities of access to healthcare, the disparities within the disproportionate impact of African American males and their families who have pre-existing health conditions and further are dying from preventable diseases.
