Health problems are attributed in part to the interaction of social and physical environments. Cardiovascular disease, strokes, diabetes, and maternal health are prevalent in the Westside. Here you can see that birth rates, prematurity and births to teens vary widely among Westside Future Fund neighborhoods.

In terms of health insurance, the percent of residents without health insurance is more or less the same as in the City of Atlanta as a whole — 16.4% in the WFF area versus 15.9% in the City of Atlanta.

One of the Westside Future Fund’s goals is to provide greater access to healthcare and better wellness support systems to improve health and well-being of residents.
