ABSTRACT
Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH 2010), a five-year demonstration project is part of the DHHS response to the President's race initiative and goal for 2010 to eliminate disparities in health status experienced by racial and ethnic minority populations in six priority areas. These areas include: infant mortality, deficits in breast and cervical cancer screening and management, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, HIV infections/AIDS, and child and adult immunizations. All of these with perhaps the exception of child immunizations, which are very much dependent upon the health-seeking behaviors of women, are directly connected to the health status of women. This article will describe the significance of this project and the potential impact that it will have on improving women's health and serving as a catalyst to eliminate health disparities nationally and perhaps globally.
