Implications of Black Women Being Affected In the African American Communities
This implication range from different dimensions such as health and well-being, political participation, employment and earning, work and family, violence and safety, poverty and opportunities among others. Albeit African Americans only composed of only 12% of the African American population, they are mostly overrepresented when it comes to high-risk population more especially their women. According to (Bailey and Peoples 25) African Americans aggregate 40% of those people who are homeless, 50 % of those who are within the prisons and 46% of the actual children who are within the foster care system. According to studies conducted a lot of African American women are usually exposed to violence throughout their lives something which causes a lot of discomfort leading to mental illness among other challenges. Other factors which play a major role causing mental illness to most of the African American women include incarceration and the actual involvement in the foster care system.
The black feminist health science studies work close with these different agendas concerning black women living in African American communities (Hammonds 270). In the effort to provide solution and help black women who happen to be suffering silently in the hands of the white people the black feminists health science and studies intervenes in a number of ways such as providing scholarships and also activism in feminist health studies, environmental justice, contemporary medical curriculum reforms conversations, studies concerned with disabilities studies of feminist techno science. The aim of the study is to come with a clear relationship concerning how black women are represented in terms of health literature review as well as the actual availability and accessibility of major programs that are meant to serve them.
The project which is majorly informed by black feminists thought together with the black feminist health science studies links these particular bodies of thought together with public health in order to come up with major possibilities in the field of future research that in most cases center black woman voices as well as lives. The black feminists thought is made up of different ideas and theories which are made purely by black women for the main purpose of empowering black women's as well as providing social justice. Thereafter I will analyze the actual number of black women living with HIV in both journals and the actual availability and accessibility of the specific programs which normally serves them. RESEARCH QUESTION Which ways are black women with HIV infections represented in the preeminent health research journals? How do the existing preventions and treatment programs serve black women with HIV infections? LITERATURE REVIEW It is believed that the African American community is quite diverse in the united states.
among them are women who happen to be suffering silently due to a number of effects to an extent that life becomes unbearable. Among some of the major effects affecting black women living in the African American community is AIDs which results to death of most of the black women (Maluwa 2307). On the same note, most of the researches being conducted concerning the same are done without the involvement of black women. On the same note, it is intersectional in nature meaning that it cannot be discriminated from the rest of the others and discussed alone. The author of the black feminist thought main intend was to center black women in intersections thought whereby it will be easy for her to tackle the actual power strangles that face black women as a result of both race and gender.
According to research black feminist thought is actually a collection of writing, ideas as well as art that articulates the real standpoint of African American woman. Black feminist thought normally describes the black woman as a different kind of group that exists in us social relation. It through this thought that it is believed that, the intersectional process of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, and ethnicity play a major role in shaping black women individuality as well as collective consciousness. Without being given a correct platform to express themselves it is impossible for even health centers to chip in and help them. c) Poverty and lack of knowledge Besides this poverty is among some of the contributing factors to increase in mortality rate of most of the black women.
Since most of them don't have the required knowledge it becomes quite hard to afford good jobs which can support them. on the same lack of knowledge curtails most of the women from exposure from their or rounding something which can help them significantly in terms of health (Menzies,). They lack the right mechanism to express themselves to the health care professionals and thus suffering silently. In regard to a particular research conducted by international aids society, Africans American are highly affected by HIV infections. According to the study, the death rate for HIV infections combined was 15% higher in black women as compared to white women. Besides this, the study argues that black people have the chance of getting other diseases such as cancer something which contributes to a short lifespan.
b) Feminist theory The theory is solely based on actual woman description of the crisis which they end up facing in the patriarchal society as well as their human experience. The main purpose of the theory is mainly to seek social change in the process of stopping subordination and neglect of women. Due to this form spit, women are viewed as useless making them possess few rights as compared to male (Crenshaw and Kimberley 139). This norm has prevailed until today whereby the gap now exists between the white people and black people. Since the white people have the notion of being dominant within the society then the black women suffer the most. No one seems to be much concerned about them something which has led them to be left behind in terms of development as well as health care.
In the case of HIV/AIDS infections which happen to be a big blow to the nation's, most of the black women don't know what to do since this particular condition worsens their situation and increases the rate of discrimination within the society. This will see to an end of suffering of black women within the society and enhance peace and harmony between the two genders. METHODOLOGY The research for this paper normally begins by a sub-section of the data set used in the journal of the American medical association as well as American journal of public health. In order for us to build up the data set for this particular research paper, we searched in Google Scholar for articles using keywords medical health as well as content analysis.
In the event when we are performing this kind of research in google scholar hits were mainly presented in order of highest to lowest citation the article has ever received and has got no particular specifications journal. Afterward, we carefully examined the titles abstract together with their respective full articles as we downloaded the pdf version of each and every particular article as well as their citation data into an Endnote database. According to our given analysis, the key component poor health concerns of black women were attributed to poor management, lack of the appropriate knowledge and racism. The analysis found out that these key factors increased suffering of black women living with HIV infection in las avgas. The articles attribute to lack of knowledge as a determining factor since it not only avoids black women from participating in research but also plays a major role in creating awareness.
Our analysis also found out that the issue of color affected a number of black women in Les vagas. Due to their color differences, they were discriminated from the rest of the other people deteriorating their rate of health. This particular body will majorly concentrate on the actual health of black people something which will cause a great improvement. Being made for black people black women will find it easy to express them and also participate in various researches something which aid in the provision of a permanent solution for their health. The different research will, therefore, be conducted which will be expected to impact positively in the lives of black people. For this reason, the actual mortality rate of black women will be decreased significantly as well as improvement in terms of their lifestyle.
