Community Health Charities: Affairs of the Heart

WASHINGTON, DC --(Marketwired - February 18, 2016) - Black women are inherently strong and resilient. That's the central message the Black Women's Health Imperative strives to deliver every day. The Imperative is a charity that identifies the most pressing health issues that affect the nation's 21 million black women and girls and invests in the best strategies, partners and organizations that share their goal: ensuring black women live longer, healthier and more prosperous lives.

The number of black women with heart disease continues to rise every day, a burden that increases demands on the health care delivery system. To help conquer this critical health issue and other medical conditions, the Imperative will soon release IndexUs: The Black Women's Health Index, the first comparative index of Black women's health. IndexUS translates 20 years of research from the Black Women's Health Study into the business case for investing in the health and wellness of Black women.
