Supporting Young Men and Boys of Color: Targeting as a Case for Health Equity
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
RWJF has long recognized that conditions such as poverty and violence negatively affect health. Conversely, factors such as good education and economic opportunity, safe streets, and supportive social networks lead to better health outcomes. Forward Promise is about making those positive health factors a reality for every young man by targeting those who are least likely to experience the conditions to realize those factors.
