Black Americans continue to have large numbers of premature and excess deaths, measured against white experience, from seven major causes.

Epidemiological and clinical evidence suggests various strategies to reduce these differentials through well-designed public health efforts at prevention. These will have to deal with harsh realities of sociocultural, economic, and political contexts.
