Few measurements pose a greater threat to the modern right's core supposition of equality than a tally of who lives and dies from preventable and treatable diseases. They have attempted (with some success) to reframe the issue as one of personal, rather than societal responsibility - using a colorblind approach that attempts to shift all responsibilty for both the problems and solution to individuals, and denying any institutional or societal bias or responsibility. This attempt is a direct attack on the continuing advancement of racial health equality.
