Health Disparities, Health Inequities, and HIV: A Girl Like Me LIVE

Submitted on Jul 21, 2022

 

Health disparities are differences in health that are linked to unjust social conditions (income inequality, racism, gender bias, and many more). A health disparity can be a higher rate of a disease among certain groups than others – even, in many cases, despite ongoing prevention efforts. HIV is just one example of an epidemic that is made worse by health disparities.

On Thursday, July 21, 2022, The Well Project held the 21st episode of A Girl Like Me LIVE. Ci Ci was joined by author, community advocate, and transformational speaker Connie L. Johnson. Connie and Ci Ci discussed health inequities and health disparities faced by Black women and others who are living with HIV. Watch this interactive discussion that explores the root of these disparities and how they impact the daily lives of women living with HIV.
