Building the Capacity of Public Health to Advance Equity

The National Collaborative for Health Equity (NCHE) and Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University (Milken Institute SPH) of Washington, DC; along with Prevention Institute (PI) of Oakland, Calif., will take stock of existing public health departments’ practices and policies relevant to equity, community engagement, and social determinants of health. Using this data, they will identify opportunities and strategies that health departments can employ to advance racial, social, and health equity.

Introducing a New Brand

COLLABORATIVES FOR HEALTH EQUITY

The National Collaborative for Health Equity is proud to partner with leaders around the country working to advance health equity. This initiative, formerly known as Place Matters, seeks to improve community conditions for health under a new brand identity: COLLABORATIVES FOR HEALTH EQUITY.

Health Opportunity and Equity (HOPE) Initiative

The HOPE Initiative provide a snapshot of the nation’s progress toward health equity. They also offer metrics to track and compare progress within and across states, overall and for specific race, ethnic, and SES groups. In doing so, these measures can help states: identify strengths and gaps in opportunity; inform population- and sector-specific policy priorities to improve opportunity; spur cross-sector dialogue; and provide a platform for states to exchange experiences to improve opportunity.

Health Equity Leadership & Exchange Network (HELEN)

The Health Equity Leadership & Exchange Network (HELEN) is a collaborative effort between the National REACH Coalition, Morehouse School of Medicine, and the National Collaborative for Health Equity.  The HELEN project will strengthen health equity leadership and increase the number of sustainable campaigns that play an important role in offering community education and mobilization.

National Collaborative for Health Equity - Working with people, partners, and a purpose

EVERYONE DESERVES A CHANCE TO ACHIEVE THEIR BEST POSSIBLE HEALTH

Working in coalition with partners and other movement building organizations, the National Collaborative seeks to be a repository of knowledge and innovation in health equity.
