Community Profile Priorities

1. Ensure all women in Komen Central Indiana's 21-county service area have access to early detection, with specific focus on African American and Hispanic women and women located in Grant and Delaware Counties.
2. Eliminate barriers that prohibit women from entering the continuum of care and receiving treatment, such as time away from work, transportation and child care.
3. Target education and outreach strategies toward behavior change to ensure women among all populations actually receive mammograms and complete the continuum of care.
4. Increase access to diagnostic and treatment services for the working poor and underinsured/uninsured, particularly for those living at or just above the 200 percent federal poverty level (defined as $44,700 for a family of four).

Special consideration and attention will be given to organizations that develop innovative programs addressing issues around the Affordable Care Act. Examples are programs addressing gaps in care, system improvements and those providing effective response to navigation for all entering the breast continuum of care.
