Survivorship disparities are differences in outcomes among specific population groups, such as race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and education.
African American women are nearly twice as likely as white women to be diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer and are much more likely than white women to die from breast cancer.
Rates of liver cancer are higher among American Indians/Alaska Natives and Asian and Pacific Islanders than other racial/ethnic groups.
Women in rural areas are twice as likely to die from cervical cancer as women in more urban areas.
