The Komen African-American Health Equity Initiative is supported through a grant from the Fund II Foundation, a social justice nonprofit with a mission to preserve the African-American experience; safeguard human rights; provide music education; preserve the environment while promoting the benefits of the outdoors; and sustain critical American values such as entrepreneurialism.
The goal of the initiative is to reduce disparities in breast cancer outcomes within the African-American community by 25% within five years, starting in the 10 U.S. cities where the inequities are greatest. These cities include: Memphis, St. Louis, Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Washington, D.C., Virginia Beach, Los Angeles Metroplex, Philadelphia Metroplex, and Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
A Collect Impact model will guide the initiative. This model addresses complex social issues through long-term, cross-sector collaborative action and investment to maximize impact by creating community-driven systems change.
The initiative will employ several project methods including assessing quality and increasing improvement of care delivery; reducing barriers through patient navigation and other means; and community empowerment through advocacy.
