Abstract

Disparities in health status of African Americans continue to exist. These disparities of poor health, in part, are attributed to decreased access to health-care services. However, culture plays a key role in health-care utilization patterns among African Americans. The purpose of this article is to examine cultural factors that affect health-care practices among African Americans and to identify specific community health nursing interventions that integrate these factors into health-care plans for African-American families and communities.
