Our Communities Our Sexual Health: Awareness and Prevention for African Americans

"This groundbreaking book provides a comprehensive historical prospective of the disproportionate burden of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among African Americans. The book opens with a compelling Foreword that features a Q&A session with early HIV prevention pioneers and champions, Drs. David Satcher and Helene Gayle. The chapters that follow explore the context of HIV and STIs in African American communities and include discussions of sexuality and the roles of faith and spirituality in HIV and STI prevention efforts. Additional chapters provide insight into strategies, e.g., HIV testing, condom distribution and marketing campaigns, parent-child communication, effective clinical care and support, and partnerships, for addressing HIV and other STI-related health disparities within these communities. The book is a valuable resource for practitioners, scholars, clinicians,educators, providers, policy makers and students."

Oral Health in America: Removing the Stains of Disparity


Member Price: $ 21.00
Non-Member Price: $ 30.00

This book is currently in production, you may order your copies now, but they will not ship until mid-January.


Oral Health in America details inequities to an oral health care system that disproportionately affects the poor, those without insurance, underrepresented and underserved communities, the disabled, and senior citizens. This book addresses issues in workforce development including the use of dental therapists, the rationale for the development of racially/ethnically diverse providers, and the lack of public support through Medicaid, which would guarantee access and also provide a rationale for building a system, one that takes into account the impact of a lack of visionary and inclusive leadership on the nation's ability to insure health justice for all.


Representing a broad spectrum of diversity, the authors bring their unique experiences and cultural insights to each chapter. Contributors represent the work and commitment of health care providers, philanthropy, corporate commitments, individual policy analysts, and decision makers. Their goal is to make visible the needless pain and suffering inequities cause and to provide options visionary leaders can adapt and implement to ensure health equity.

This book is currently in production, you may order your copies now, but they will not ship until mid-April.


This important publication builds on the racial health equity work that public health advocates and others have been doing for decades.

This book, which targets racism directly and includes the word squarely in its title, marks an important shift in the field's antiracism struggle for racial health equity. It is intended for use in a wide range of settings including health departments, schools, and in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors where public health professionals work. It will also benefit students still in training and will also serve as a practical reference text for courses and workshops. In this way, this book anticipates acting as a bridge connecting public health professionals, students, community members, as well as policymakers.
