Racism and the impact of social determinants of health drive disparities in outcomes for Black women impacted by triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). Addressing these barriers is critical to advancing health equity.

Gilead awarded $5.7M in grants to 21 U.S. organizations for programs working to advance health equity for Black people impacted by TNBC.

  • Improving community, patient and provider communication, and relationships and engagement throughout the care continuum
  • Providing outreach and education about TNBC for communities, patients, families and caregivers
  • Supplying resources to help people navigate the TNBC healthcare journey
