The Problem:
• Lack of available healthy food, clean water
• Disparities in the health care system
• Higher death rates from preventable diseases, cancer, diabetes, stroke
• The stress of systemic poverty and police occupation – colonial conditions

The Solution:
• African controlled health care
• Community gardens
• African health initiatives of the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project
