This groundbreaking book applies the concept of social determinantsof health to the health of African- American men. While therehave been significant efforts in recent years to eliminate healthdisparities, serious disparities continue to exist especially withregard to African-American men who continue to sufferdisproportionately from poor health when compared to other racial,ethnic, and gender groups in the United States. Thisbook covers the most important issues relating to socialdeterminants of health and also offers viable strategies forreducing health disparities.
