National Black Men's Health Network

The National Black Men's Health Network was founded in June 1987 by a group of community-conscious individuals to raise public awareness about the excessive morbidity and mortality rates in the African-American community in general and among African-American males in particular. African-American males are known to suffer extremely high rates of heart disease, cancer, homicide, alcoholism, drug abuse, HIV disease, injuries, and other major causes of disability and death. While maintaining a specific focus on the grave and often-neglected health concerns of African-American men, the organization also advocates and supports attention to the health needs of women and children, believing that the overall health of any community depends upon a positive balance between the genders.
