Minority populations are disproportionately effected by unintended pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and have lower rates of screening for common cancers. Access to high-quality care also varies. This workgroup will develop evidence-based recommendations on culturally sensitive mechanisms to improve the standard of reproductive and sexual health care especially for people of color, immigrants and refugees, victims and survivors of violence, and people with disabilities. The workgroup started meeting in January 2020.
