Health Equity and Cancer
Health equity is defined as everyone getting an equal opportunity to be as healthy as possible. Regarding cancer, health equity means an equal opportunity to prevent, detect, and treat cancer.

History has shown that Black/African American populations are diagnosed at a later stage and have higher death rates than all other racial/ethnic groups for many cancer types.

Studies suggest that certain groups in the United States experience cancer disparities because of the likelihood of obstacles when seeking health care. Advancing health equity would reduce barriers to care to allow all groups to get the necessary access they need.
