Africans immigrants in the United States are one of the fastest growing immigrant communities. Too often their experiences are lumped in with the experiences of US-born Black Americans. Because of language, culture, the impact of migration and other factors, African immigrants have needs and stories distinctively different from US-born Black Americans. This discussion will provide an overview on African immigrant health. It will also seek to highlight current research and increase awareness of the need for community-led research that supports service delivery and advocacy.
