Urge U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to Mobilize, Identify, and Address Disparities in Federal Response

According to some reports, in Chicago, African Americans account for more than half of all COVID-19 positive test results and 72% of recorded virus-related deaths, although they constitute only 32% of the city's population. In Milwaukee, African Americans account for 73% of all COVID-19 deaths, although they make up just 28% of residents. Similar data is beginning to be reported in additional communities across the nation.

Join America’s hospitals and health systems, physicians, and nurses urging HHS to increase the availability of testing, ensure access to equitable treatment and disseminate timely, relevant, culturally appropriate and culturally sensitive public health information.

Share ANA’s letter to HHS Secretary by copying the URL and posting the link on Facebook and LinkedIn. Thank you for your support!*

*ANA\California will be diving deeper into California’s response to racial and health disparities, initiatives by the National Black Nurses Association, and offering more ways to advocate for our minority populations in our May 7th issue of The Pioneer newsletter. Stay tuned! more
