African Initiative for Men’s Health

Previous Program

RIAC, in partnership with the MA Department of Public Health, worked on ways to improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities for African-born men in Massachusetts. This initiative aimed to:

  • Gather data on community needs, system gaps, and best practices in serving African-born men
  • Strategically outline culturally- and linguistically-appropriate policies, programs, and practices to improve outcome and reduce disparities for the target population
