Access to quality, holistic health care has always been a struggle for Black people in the U.S. While there has been movement to expand health-insurance coverage, Black people are still more likely to die from diseases like diabetes, breast cancer, and heart disease. Black pregnant people and their infants are also more likely to die from complications around pregnancy. Analysis around access to health care that does not also include thinking around the implications of racism, misogynoir, xenophobia, homophobia, transphobia, fatphobia, ageism, and ableism is reductionist. Activists and organizations like Black Women’s Health Imperative have worked to improve healthcare access in Black communities by providing resources, education, research, and testing, and by advocating for policy change.
