The Health of Any Nation is measured by three (3) things.
The number one (1) issue at this time is the lack of access to information.
The Vision and Mission of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is to ensure a society in which all individuals have equal rights without discrimination based on race; to ensure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred.
