In our country, not everyone has a fair chance to achieve their best health. In particular, many communities of color face one barrier after another to the opportunity for good health. There are many reasons for this, including a lack of healthy food, safe playgrounds for children, and inviting places for citizens to work, learn, and study.
At the National Collaborative for Health Equity, we’re working to identify and address the social, economic, and environmental causes of racial and ethnic health inequities, and to build the kinds of leadership and partnerships necessary to improve conditions for health.
We work within and with our communities – recognizing and honoring their deep knowledge, power, and resiliency – to eliminate health inequities and the systems that produce them.
We’ll continue to work to reverse the damage resulting from racism and other destructive social hierarchies across a range of sectors and areas of life. Our goal is to support and arm leaders with tools in their field to advance equity through programs and initiatives that build leadership, connect partners and sectors, and measure conditions for health.
