We are an extremely diverse and inclusive, female minority-owned nonprofit. NCAAHDER focuses on Black women's health unapologetically.
We are a national organization with community-based roots whose mission is to provide sustainable solutions to health disparities and inequities through community engagement, partnership building, education, research, health promotion, and policy advocacy.
The need for our organization is crucial. At NCAAHDER we investigate and report on enduring equity concerns for Black women who suffer disproportionately from health disparities and systemic health inequities. We identify trends and patterns in health disparities and inequities that inform our health outreach across the nation through our epidemiological investigations, literature reviews, and qualitative research.
Aligned with these endeavors is NCAAHDER's commitment to building national and community-based partnerships to collaboratively implement relevant and sustainable solutions to facilitate the reduction in inequities that impact Black women.
In addition to serving as our principal consultant, Dr. Akila-Ka Ma'at is also our George Mason University research partner in the Washington, Virginia, and Maryland region. We also have partnerships in Colorado and Denver.
