Improving Health Outcomes for Black Women and Girls With Disabilities

Studies show that people with disabilities are more likely than people without disabilities to report having poorer health and less access to adequate health care.

The systemic and structural barriers faced by Black disabled women and girls in the health care system stem from a legacy of slavery, ongoing anti-Black racism, and ableism.
