Reaching Across the Divide

Medical Team Looking at Xray Medical Worker

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has responded to disparities in health among racial and ethnic minority populations by launching Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH). The REACH program is a cornerstone of CDC’s efforts to identify, reduce, and ultimately eliminate health disparities. Through REACHing Across the Divide: Finding Solutions to Health Disparities, the CDC shares its successes and lessons learned in eliminating health disparities through the REACH program. Its intent in sharing these innovative strategies and interventions is to assist others in their efforts to successfully close health gaps among racial and ethnic minority groups around the nation.
