Black/African American Health Report
The Black/African American Health Initiative (B/AAHI) has issued its Report on the Health of Black/African Americans in San Francisco. Although San Franciscans are healthier than Americans in many other parts of the country, Black/African American (B/AA) San Franciscans, have persistently had poorer health than their fellow residents.
Based on the most recent data, Black and African American infants are five times more likely than White infants to die before their first birthday. This health disparity continues through adulthood. Life expectancy for Black/African Americans is the lowest of all race/ethnicities in San Francisco. A B/AA resident could expect to live 72 years nearly 10 years less than White, Asian, and Latino residents who can expect to live into their 80s.
